[Hosea Stout Diary] Monday Oct 25th 1847. Handsome snow this morning[.] Still cloudy but turned warm as the sun rose.
Several went out in the river in search I among the rest where we waded for along time and finally located a crossing at the old ford and proceeded on our journey & stopped at the upper Old Pawnee village where we staid all night. To night the President sent Amasa Lyman & 6 men on to Winter Quarters to give notice of our coming.
