August 9, 1853

Tuesday August 9th. Got all across safe and without any accidents, drove out about 1 mile and one of our oxen laid down and died. Saw a great many dead cattle along the road to-day. Some attribute it to their swimming the river. Three miles after leaving the river we crossed a fine creek, 7 miles farther and we came to Shoot creek. Here we camped again, grass not very good. 10 miles farther on our journey.
