April 22, 1806

"we had not arrived at the top of the hill over which the road leads opposite the village before Charbono's horse threw his load, and taking fright at the saddle and rode which still adhered, ran at full speed down the hill, near the village he disengaged himself from the saddle and rob, an indian hid the robe in his lodge ... being confident that the indians had taken the robe I sent the Indian woman on to request Capt. C. to halt the party and send back some of the men to my assistance being determined wither to make the indians deliver the robe or burn their houses.  with this resolution I returned to their village which I had just reached as Labuish met me with the robe which he informed me he found in an Indian lodge hid behind their baggage... we now have the following regulations as to our future order of march that Capt. C. & myself should devided the men who were disencumbered by horses and march alternately each day  the one in front of the other in rear."

April 23, 1806

"we continued our march along a narrow rocky bottom on the N. side of the riverů arrived at a village, those people appeared pleased to see us, sold us 4 dogs and some wood.  we had the violin played and some of the men danced; after which the natives entertained us with a dance after their method.  this dance diffed from any I have yet seen.  they formed a circle and all sung as well the spectators as the dancers who performed within the circle.  these placed their sholders together with their robes tightly drawn about them and danced in a line from side to side, several parties of from 4 to seven will be performing within the circle at the same time.  the whole concluded with a premiscuous dance in which most of them sung and dance."

April 24, 1806

"most of the party complain of their feet and legs this evening being very sore. It is no doubt caused by walking over the rough stone and deep sand after being accustomed to a soft soil. Made 12 miles to day. "
