I attempted fathom it with a Cord of 5 fathom which was the only Cord I had, could not find bottom ? of the distance across. I proceeded up this river 10 miles from it’s enterance into the Columbia to a large house on the N E. Side and Encamped near the house, the flees being So noumerous in the house that we could not Sleep in it. …”

The same so as to meet, seeing no effective way of relief but in accepting the overtures of the United States. Mia Wia Bia, Se Car Je We Au. Dead.
