we crossed the ferry & continued our journey & again crossed the River at Laramie & continued our journey through the Black hills
one day a herd of Buffaloes ran through in front of the train & took away all our loose stock with them but some of the boys followed on horseback & after a long Chase got them back[.] we had a number of Stampede when the Cattle were in the waggons but without much dammage & no one much hurt[.] Indians often came into our Camp but when they saw we were on the watch & will [well] armed they always left us in peace
Sept 15 Arrived at Salt Lake City then built up of Log houses & felt very glad to be at the end of our journey[.] after Camping a few days beside John Thorups house I took a Room in the first ward & moved my family into it
