Recapitulation

1 Brigadier-General, 8,049 acres.

1 Lieutenant-Colonel, 4,851 acres.

3 Majors, (4,312 acres each), 12,936 acres.

14 Captains (3,234 acres each), 45,276 acres.

20 Lieutenants (2,156 acres each), 43,120 acres.

23 Sergeants (216 acres each), 4,968 acres.

1 Ensign, 2,156 acres.

1 Cornet, 2,156 acres.

236 Privates (108 acres each), 25,488 acres.

[Total] 300 Men, [Total] 149,000 acres.

It will be observed that the quantity of land allotted the private soldiers was only one hundred and eight acres each. It should have been no less than "three hundred," which was the quantity those great statesmen Jefferson, Wythe, and Mason mentioned in their joint letter to Clark at the inception of the campaign, as being "just and reasonable," and what they were likely to receive if it proved successful. There was certainly an implied moral obligation created by that letter which everybody ought to have respected; but even without it "three hundred acres" to each of the men, who aided so materially in acquiring a territorial empire, would have been little enough. More land should have been included in the grant, but even as it was, a division of the one hundred and forty-nine thousand acres, which gave one hundred twenty-three thousand five hundred and twelve acres to sixty-four officers, and only twenty-five thousand four hundred and eighty-eight acres to two hundred and thirty-six privates, does not seem to have been exactly as equitable as it should have been.
