A substantial prospectus and sample pages for a report published later in 1887 regarding agricultural production and increasing settlement and development in the Dakota Territory. Contains many statistics and much interesting analysis of development and the potential of the territory, with the overall aim of attracting much greater settlement there. Much scarcer than the full report itself, OCLC locates five copies at Delaware, AAS, Harvard, and Yale; Allen adds two more at the South Dakota Historical Society and Boston Public Library.
