This is a very full report, with the expected information included. There is no mention of the earliest settlements in the Military Western tract, the Oneida Settlement, and Onondaga Lake regions (these are covered elsewhere in a series of early 1800s reports requested by David Hosack.) Its proximity to the place where Mormonism was born is inferred; only 20 to 30 Mormons were then settled in the northern part of this county.

Important sections to review include:

  • Local Flora (p. 230)
  • Mineral waters of various sorts and places (pp. 231-4), with mention of salt works and its effects on health by preventing the Asiatic cholera epidemic from impacting the settlements.
  • The Finger Lakes geography (p. 235)
  • Mormonism and temperance (p. 238)
  • Child feeding and care (pp. 238-9)
  • Diseases (pp. 239 on)

This was presented by Edward F. Sing, Lyman Clary, I. W. Hanchett, R. R. Davis, and H. Hoyt, Syracuse, June 5, 1834.
