First edition. The author's plan "on the utility and practicability of opening an inlet at the lower end of the Albemarle Sound, near a place called Nag's Head," including a list of needed supplies and estimates on labor and cost. Almost half of the project's full estimate of $174,000 was for purchasing "200 negroes for the use of the work." Not in Thornton Bibliography or Thornton Official Publications. OCLC locates only a microform (made from "North Carolina State Papers [1816-1851]" at UNC).
