June 15, 1853

Wednesday the 15th. Cannot cross yet today. They do not do as they would wish to be done by with their ferry. It is uncertain when we can cross on the ferry. We thought it best to calk up our wagon box which we did in about two hours and crossed with safety. While crossing word came that the ferry boat had sunk with a heavy wagon.
