This morning I purchased 2 deer skins @ $1.25 each and left Carr's in Company with Capt. John Redman. we rode 41 miles and arrived at Sumpter, stopping for the night with O. Teagarden. during the journey Capt. Redman became very sick and was confined on the road side with several fits, which detained me on my journey very much being compelled to waite upon and attend him. weather changeable with light showers of rain. Expenses of day $4.50.
