Saturday the 18th. Started at 6:30 o’clock. Came to Porters Rock in three miles, reached Bitterwood creek at noon. Some brush along this creek. Lost one of our cattle. After hunting about 2 hours found him ahead in a drove. Traveled till after sunset and camped at Heber Springs. Drove 19 miles today.

    My guess is that “Bitterwood creek” is Cottonwood Creek.
