Mormon History, Jul 12, 1848

[Hosea Stout Diary] Wed July 12th 1848. Moved on[.] Passed Cobble hill from the top of which Chimney Rock is to be seen to the West
To night we put up opposite to ancient Bluff Ruins where we met some waggons which had come to meet us from the Valley
Here was a large company of Sioux very friendly and altogether the best looking and neatest Indians I ever saw[.] Proud spirited & seemed to disdain to beg & the men would seldom condescend to trade in small articles like moccasins but would have their Squaws do it. Had a meeting to night and agreed to lay up to morrow.
