Senator Tracy's Committee examines the existing and contemplated road and water connections between Ohio and the eastern States, and the role that federal moneys might play to facilitate those connections. The bustle of activity in road and canal construction in Pennsylvania and Maryland are given particular attention. As OCLC summarizes, the Report is "concerned mainly with the building of roads in Ohio."
