May 7th, 1859 -- It rained all night, in the morning the roads were muddy and heavy, and so we concluded to lay over till noon when we again took the route, leaving the Council Bluffs road and the Cripe boys who concluded to go that way, and travelled down the Nishna Botana some 11 miles on our way to Plattesmouth and reached Mud Creek Grove, where we camped by an excellent spring. There are four teams going to start from this grove on Monday first for the mines. We are in Mills County 16 miles from Glenwood, the county seat.

No entry for this day.
