Tuesday the 19th. Our train divided. It was too large on account of grass. We started out alone again, having traveled some 799 miles in company with those 2 wagons and 7 men we joined on the Platte River. One mile from camp we found a good spring. 8 miles father and we come to Smith’s Fork of Bear River, very bad to cross and a very rocky piece of road after crossing, but once over this we found a beautiful road and grass in abundance. Camped on the bank of the river after a drive of 18 miles.
