Journal Entry 1806 Jun 7: "We were all occupied in preparing packs and saddles for our journey; and as we intend to visit the Quamash flats on the tenth, in order to lay in a store of provisions for the journey over the mountains, we do not suffer the men to disturb the game in that neighbourhood." (Lewis. 1814. Vol. 2, p. 309.)
