May 17, 1853

Tuesday the 17th. We crossed Otter creek and the 3 Sandies today, crossing rather bad at each, passed three graves side by side. Two were buried June 4th, 1850, the other June 4th, 1852. Camped 4 miles from Little Blue, looked around and counted 13 camps in sight, in all about 2500 head of cattle. One drove alone had 1300 head in it. Grass not very good to night [sic].
