Thompson River
Thompson River is in the southern interior of British Columbia. It flows west from Kamloops, and south and west into the Fraser River at Lytton. The Thompson was named in 1908 by Simon Fraser, after prolific geographer and explorer David Thompson.1
The Thompson merges with the North Thompson and South Thompson at Kamloops. In this despatch, Douglas describes the North River as a North Branch of the Thompson.
