Tuesday the 3rd. Stared at the usual hour, crossed two very bad creeks, the last was the Walkarnsha, camped about 5′oclock. Commenced raining about 8 o’clock P. M. and rained all night, a very bad night to guard stock, which we are compelled to do rain or shine.

    I believe the second creek they crossed was the Wakarusa River. I’m uncertain what the first creek was.
