Journal Entry 1806 May 6: "It was now difficult to procure anything to eat that our chief dependence was on the horse which we received yesterday for medicine; but to our great disappointment, he broke the rope by which he was confined, made his escape, and left us supperless in the rain." (Lewis. 1814. Vol. 2, p. 272.)
