May 3rd, 1859 -- Last night a little before sundown another team from Marengo headed by three Cripes, have in sight and camped along side of us. It rained a little in the morning, and the roads were considerably muddy, nevertheless we travelled about fourteen miles down Turkey Creek Bottom doing without corn till night, when we bought enough to feed our teams, at $1.00 per bushel and had to beg for it at that. So wags the world. It takes a mint of Gold to reach the land of Gold.

No entry for this day.
