We must not on any account admit the Russian territory to extend at any point to the Rocky Mountains.
Side 429 - Subsequently he modified this offer by proposing that the line be drawn " from the southern extremity of the strait called ' Duke of Clarence's Sound,' through the middle of this strait to the middle of the strait which separates Prince of Wales and Duke of York islands " from the islands to the north, and thence eastwardly to the mainland, thus giving Prince of Wales Island to Russia.
