Description Running title: "Correspondence relative to complaints of the inhabitants of the Red River Settlement." As it became possible to trade with American settlements to the south, dissatisfaction with the monopoly increased at Red River. In 1847, a petition to Queen Victoria was drafted and sent to England, where Alexander Kennedy Isbister forwarded it to the Colonial Secretary. This paper contains evidence, etc. compiled by Isbister.
