[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 1st 1847 A warm Plesant day. A good share of the camp are out of Bread & meat & they are preparing to go out to day to surround A Herd of Buffalo & get some cows. A Company of Indians Came over to go to the Hunt & expected us to go with them As we were afterwards informed but we did not go untill several hours afterwards.
We then went in search of them but found neither Indians or dead Buffalo. They came in at night & brought some meat with them for themselves but none for us.
Comodore Stockton Arived at night & camped nearby & said He would like to accompany us.
