[Hosea Stout Diary] Sund June 25th 1848. Moved to the main Platte today 6 miles which is about 244 miles from Winter Quarters. Here we overtook the advance companies. We encamped away from the river & had to dig about two and half feet for water. There was a meeting today.
Mr Devlin a man who was spoken of while we lay up at Chariton ford was now lurking around and was now gone back to grand island where the U. S. Soldiers were at work.
