Abstract: From 1872 a lawyer and newspaper publisher at Snohomish, Washington, Morse traveled extensively about the Puget Sound country and filled these notebooks with historical gleanings.

Accompanying the mss. (as P-B 54) are three letters from Morse to H.H. Bancroft, Snohomish City, 1880-1881, concerning the latter's use of his notes; and a letter, E.C. Ferguson to Bancroft, 1880, forwarding a letter by Morse and telling of his own pioneering experiences.
