Tuesday 5th. We proceeded on to some Indian camps  and there we killed three deer. The next day we went on to more Indian camps  and killed some deer. On the 7th we encamped in a bottom on the south side of the Missouri,  and the next day turned out to hunt. We killed 10 elk and 18 deer, and remained there all night. On the 9th we built a pen,  to secure our meat from the wolves, which are very numerous here; and in the evening went further down and encamped.  The next morning we set out on our return towards the fort; and killed some elk and deer in our way. On the 12th we arrived at the fort; and found that one of our interpreter's wives had in our absence made an addition to our number.  On the 13th we had three horses shod to bring home our meat.
