Joel Roberts Poinsett papers by Joel Roberts Poinsett( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Correspondence and papers re his interest in politics on the national and state level, his mission to Mexico, and scientific matters, especially methods to improve agriculture, shipping and other industries. Letter, 6 June 1850, ("The Homestead near Greenville S.C.,") to Commander Charles Wilkes, U.S. N[avy], Washington, D.C., in support of Wilkes' claim to extra compensation for his services as commander of the United States Exploring Expedition (commonly called the Wilkes Expedition). The U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842 was primarily a major scientific research mission set up to provide the U.S. with a better understanding of the Pacific Ocean in hopes of improving the U.S. whaling industry. Recalling that "the intentions of... President [Van Buren] in relation to your compensation & that of the navy officers under you who were charged with the departments of astronomy, Physics, meteorology and hydrography," Poinsett states that the officers were to receive the pay of officers of similar rank employed on the coast surveys, but "with regard to yourself.... it would have been unjust to have burthened you with highly arduous and responsible duties both naval and scientific without augmenting your compensation in both respects. The expedition was regarded by the executive as being entirely divested of all military character except in so far as was necessary to maintain the discipline of the service; it's purposes were purely scientific. You were appointed First Officer of the Expedition and it was clearly intended if not so expressed, that you should have both the naval command of the squadron and the control and superintendence of the scientific department & scientific operations of the expedition. Your appointment was made without any regard to your naval rank, but altogether from our belief in your fitness to discharge it's varied and high responsible duties; and we considered you entitled to receive an equal compensation with officers performing similar duties whatever might be their rank or title."
