August 12, 1853

Friday August 12th. Lost 2 oxen belonging to our train last night and they are dying off all around us. Destruction stares us in the face. Drove 3 miles this morning and came to a dry creek, 8 miles farther is another creek. Not much feed, 6 miles more and we came to a creek with very good feed. Camped here. Drove 18 miles.
