Someone else's land

Brian Mott wants Don Olson to explain where in the Constitution Thomas Jefferson got the right to acquire land in the Louisiana Purchase (Readers' Forum, Aug. 27). That may be a good question, but I have always wondered why we had to purchase a title from France in the first place? Didn't it really belong to someone else?
