Thursday Sept. 29th. Drove out this morning quite early, this is a happy day to us. This day lands us where we can see once more a civilized community and once more enjoy the preached gospel and the society of Christians. Thanks be to the All Seeing Eye who has watched over us across the dreary plains and still more dreary mountains. Reached Oregon City about 3 o’clock. This the the end of our journey of toil. We are landed safe in the “Willamette” Valley a point of great interest to all weary emigrants.
