Barnes Public School text Book 1885 The Louisiana Purchase: 

One of the greatest events in the history of our country took place early in Jefferson’s first term as president. Before this time the United States owned the country only as far west as the Mississippi River. At the close of the French and Indian war Spain owned the territory beyond the Mississippi River. It was known as the “Province of Louisiana” but with a secret treaty Spain gave it back to the French. In 1803 President Jefferson bought Louisiana Province from France for fifteen million dollars. Louisiana was a vast region as large as all of United States before the purchase. 

It included what we now call Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, North and South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington together with a large part of Minnesota, nearly all of Oklahoma and Kansas, part of Colorado and most of Wyoming. If congress had not authorized the purchase of that Great Territory from France there is no doubt the French would have planted colonies and been a nation side by side of the United States. 

The Mississippi River would have always been a matter of dispute. The United States would have then been compelled to have a large standing army for defense as foreign countries do and instead of becoming a great peaceful Republic without a rival on the continent it would have been only one of two or three nations which would have had many costly wars with each other. Our country would never have become the great Republic if the Louisiana Purchase had not been acquired.
