Travelling with Lewis and Clark

Lewis: The Doctor was unable to join us for the journey and we set out at three in the afternoon. We had some difficulty making it over a riffle a mile out of town. There was some mistake in the arrangement for bread at the town of Wheeling. The contract was misunderstood and the bread was left. I sent the Corporal back to get the bread and gave him a dollar to give the woman for her troubles. About that time torrential rain attacked us and continued into
the night. Through the course of the night we tried to keep everything dry. The rain was unusually cold for this time of year.
