To day we left Daniel Dailey's and took up our line of march. after driving 29 miles and passing through the town of Sumpter we arrived at Mr. Alderman's where we stopped for the night, and there learned that my wagons had passed about 10 o'clock A.M. I also learned that Dr. Stanwood & wife of Liberty had stopped there the night before on their way up to Crockett, we however did not meet them on the road and must have passed each other at Sumpter. we found the roads very heavy & considerably washed up making the travel exceedingly fatiguing. expenses of the day 4$. weather clear and very hot.
