Tuesday the 10th. Started in company with Lithcoe and Woodard, traveled till noon and one of their wagons broke at the Catholic Mission. We came on to feed, crossed one or two very bad creeks, camped alone for the first time as our company did not come up. We are now in the Pawnee nation which is said to be the most troublesome tribe of indians on this end of the trip.

    The mission she mentions is the St. Marys Mission, established five years earlier by Jesuit missionaries in what is now the town of St. Marys.
