one of our horses takes a serious fall

we purchase a unique hat from the indians

" the road was excessively dangerous along this creek being a narrow rockey path generally on the side of a steep precipice ... Fraziers horse fell from this road .. and roled with his load near a hundred yards into the creek. We all expected that the horse was killed but to our astonishment ...he arose to his feet & appeared but little injured ... this was the most wonderful escape I ever witnessed ... we camped ... having traveled 18 miles we took a small quantity of portable soup, and retired to rest much fatiegued several of the men are unwell of the disentary. Brakings out, or irruptions of the Skin, have also been common with us for some time."
