    Travelling with Lewis and Clark

    Lewis: At first light we set out. I took a dose of Rush's pills (a strong laxative) which helped out a lot. By night my fever was gone. At about 12 o'clock we passed Wilkinson-ville, here was a great chain of rocks stretching its arm across the Ohio. We landed this evening where the Ohio and Mississippi meet. I feel much better now yet very weak.
