This is a link to the Benj. Hough to Edward Tiffin letter that talks about how terrible Michigan’s landscape is to survey.   Didn’t help that they were in a swamp during a rainy May and October.

For more information on this and other Territorial Papers, consult the Michigan Territory Papers 12 volume set in the Library of Michigan.
