May 4th, 1859 -- Today I parted with two hundred-weight of flour in order to lighten our load, the roads ahead being very hilly. We killed a great many rattlesnakes and snakes of all descriptions, and near night just passed Lewis, county seat of Cass County, and camped on the creek immediately beyond the town, which numbers, I believe, somewhere near 300 inhabitants and can boast of a courthouse nearly as good as Marengo.

No entry for this day.
