[Hosea Stout Diary] Friday June 9th, 1848. Travelled 12 3/4 miles to and stoped at Long Lak. Here was an abundance of Sweet flag or calemus a large quantity of which was geathered.
To day Oliver Duncan one of Prest Youngs Boys fell off the wagon toungue & the waggon ran over his leg & Broke it.
This evening I detailed the guard which was an uncommon long job where the carral encloses about ten or fifteen acres. It is all I can do after we stop untill dark.
