[Hosea Stout Diary] Saturday February 6th 1847. Today I was engaged in geathering up the public arms as before and arrainged the guard. The weather has been fine for a day or two. Today I took down my tent & was now entirely dwelling in my house
It will be just one year on the 12th of this month since I first errected my tent on the shores of the Mississippi river and have not been in a situation to live with out it untill today & even now we are preparing to move on again.
