Mormon History, Jun 15, 1848

[Hosea Stout Diary] Thurs June 15th 1848. Earley this morning a large number of teams were sent over from the other side of the river to assist us over. We were over by noon and encamped about one mile below the Ford. I got very wet. In the evening it rained very hard in which I had to detail the guard.
To day we heard from Kimballs Co who were at cedar Creek. After we left the Horn the Omaha made an attact on their cattle & horses. In trying to rescue them Br Ricks & Egan were badly wounded. They in return wounded & perhaps killed some of them.
