June 20th, 1859 -- Got started bright and early, made a long steady drive, and reached Deer Creek a little before noon. There is a trading post here, quite a number of whites, and a large village of Indians. Reached the Platte once more, travelled up it some 9 miles, and camped just behind the large Salt Lake train, and some of the boys brought in three hares.
Travelled twenty miles. Crossed Deer Creek. There is quite a store at Deer Creek and an Indian village.
