Saw some Indians today. Mr. Tyler said they were Cheyenne, but we still got ready for trouble. They didn't come straight in to trade with us and that's bad. No, they just followed us out of gunshot range for a while.

I joined Pa riding herd and so did some others. We kept the stock real close to the wagons and made sure nobody lagged behind. Ma made the girls ride on the wagons until it was safe.
