September 14, 1853

Wednesday the 14th. Laid by till noon, bought some flour at 30¢ per pound, met Mr. Ritchie as we started out. He was a native of Jacksonville, Ill. looking for his brother who is about a day behind. He was direct from Oregon City and gave us some valuable information. Drove 12 miles and camped. No water but what we carried, except a fine shower we had during the night.
