Travelling with Lewis and Clark

Detachment Orders from Clark: While the commanding office and Captain Clark are absent from camp, the party will be commanded by Serg. Ordway. The sawyers are still working to cut enough planks. The blacksmiths are still working also. The four men are still working to make sugar and will do so until told otherwise. The practicing party will continue to discharge only one round each per day, which will be done under the direction of Serg. Ordway. All practices will be at the same target, and at the same distance of fifty years off hand. During each practice, the person who makes the best shot receives a gill of extra whiskey. Floyd will take charge of our quarters and store and be exempt from guard duty until our return.

Travelling with Lewis and Clark

Lewis: The wind blew so hard this morning that we delayed untill 8 A. M.

we gave a medal of small size to a man by the name of Wal-lal'-le, a principal man among the Cathlahmahs, he appeared very thankfull for the honour conferred on him and presented us a large sturgeon. we continued our rout up the river to an old village on the Stard. side where we halted for dinner.

we met on the way the principal Cheif of the Cathlahmahs, Sh-hh-wh-cap, who had been up the river on a trading voyage. he gave us some Wappetoe and fish; we also purchased some of the latter.

soon after we halted for dinner the two Wackiacums who have been pursuing us since yesterday morning with two dogs for sale, arrived. they wish tobacco in exchange for their dogs which we are not disposed to give as our stock is now reduced to a very few carrots.

our men who have been accustomed to the use of this article Tobaco and to whom we are now obliged to deny the uce of this article appear to suffer much for the want of it. they substitute the bark of the wild crab which they chew; it is very bitter, and they assure me they find it a good substitute for tobacco. the smokers substitute the inner bark of the red willow and the sacacommis.

here our hunters joined us having killed three Eagles and a large goose. I had now an oportunity of comparing the bald with the grey Eagle; I found that the greay Eagle was about larger, it's legs and feet were dark while those of the bald Eagle wer of a fine orrange yellow; the iris of the eye is also of a dark yellowish brown while that of the other is of a bright silvery colour with a slight admixture of yellow.

after dinner we proceeded on and passed an Elegant and extensive bottom on the South side and an island near it's upper point which we call Fanny's Island and bottom. the greater part of the bottom is a high dry prarie. near the river towards the upper point we saw a fine grove of whiteoak trees; we saw some deer and Elk at a distance in the prarie, but did not delay for the purpose of hunting them. we continued our rout after dinner untill late in the evening and encamped on the next island above fanny's Island.

we found it difficult to obtain as much wood as answered our purposes. the hunters who had proceeded on before us after dinner did not join us this evening. some indians visited us after dark, but did not remain long. agreeably to our estimate as we decended the river, we came 16 m. 23rd, 16 m. the 24th, 15 the 25th, and 18 m. the 26th, tho' I now think that our estimate in decending the river was too short.
