The official record of the Ingraham Everglades Exploring Expedition of 1892 was created by Expedition Secretary, Wallace R. Moses. The version transcribed here was in the possession of Sydney O. Chase and is a typescript derivative of Moses's original log of the Expedition.
James E. Ingraham's diary of the Expedition is a typescript derivative of Ingraham's original diary of the expedition. When he created this typescript diary, Ingraham incorporated the record of the Expedition created by W.R. Moses.
The account of the Expedition created by Alonzo Church is entitled, "A Dash Through the Everglades: being a full and accurate account of the strange things seen by a party crossing that place, with a very interesting account of their adventures and a record of the great hominy eating done on that journey, all by an observer. It is a typescript derivative of Church's original diary of the expedition, and includes minor annotations made by S.O. Chase."
