Erastus F. Beadle -- 19 juli 1857
After breakfast walked up to Cook's. Found him ready for a stroll, which we both improved. The weather being cloudy made it a treat when compared with the previous hot days when the thermometer ranged at 100. We walked about three miles down the river along the edge of the bluff. Returning, come up the bottom along the margin of the river. It was a region of country I have never before visited and was delighted with it as only this territory can delight one. Found some fine raspberries.
Afternoon clear and hot. Wrote some, slept some, and fretted some. In the evening took a walk. Steamer E. A. Ogden up from St. Louis.
Erastus F. Beadle (1821-1894), a man who spent several months in Omaha during the early territorial days. Zijn dagboek dat daarvan verslag doet, is gepubliceerd als To Nebraska in 1857.
