Colville District
Colville District is referred to only once in the collection, by James Cooper, who reports in this private correspondence on a rolling prairie interspersed with belts of timber, which is denominated at present Thompsons River and Colville districts. It is difficult to verify if Cooper refers to what is known today as the Thompson-Nicola Regional District,1 or the lands surrounding Fort Colvile, which appears a more likely referent, given the nature of Cooper's report.
