[Hosea Stout Diary] Monday July 17th 1848. All moved on. Hebers company crossed over the platte this morning. We encamped nearley opposite to Scotts bluffs making rather a diminutive appearance now as Carns company only consisted of two tens Fulmers and Calls. It was here decided that I should continue Capt of the guard[.] We had a hard rain in the evening.
