On Sunday evening, eight men, two women and two children of Walling's company arrived in the city, having left the train a few miles east of Fort Bridger on Thursday morning. A little girl, six years of age, daughter of Mr. Andrew Petit [Pettit], of Long Island, had fallen from the wagon and suffered a severe fracture from the hind wheel passing over her left limb, above the knee. The party above alluded to brought the girl into the city on a litter.
Drs. Anderson and Kay had to stretch the limb two and a half inches to bring the bones to their proper position, which being successfully done, the limb was properly splintered and the little girl is seemingly in a fair way to recover.
