" Our men nearly all Complaining of ther bowels, a heaviness at the stomach and Lax, Some of those taken first getting better, a number of Indians about us gazeing &c. &c. This day proed verry worm and Sultery, nothing killed men complaining of their diat of fish and roots. All that is able working at the Canoes, Several Indians leave us to day, the raft continue on down the river, one old man informed us that he had been to the White peoples fort at the falls & got white beeds &c. his Story was not believed as he Could explain nothing._"
