Umination, burning all night. In the morning we g

this point, which was barely known before

1858.] Friday the 13th, the next day, was my birthday and Mrs.
Thompson, who was always striving to do something to make
our circumstances pleasant, prepared a large peach pie with her own
hands in celebration. The Major and Jones having come in the night
before, we passed most of the time that day in a large tent eating
melons, the Major acting

as carver of the fruit. When we had eaten a watermelon
he would
declare that

spots where the flesh turned black and all the men said it was a
bad-looking wound. They thought I would lose my
leg. I concluded to poultice it to draw out any poison that remained,
and kept bread-and-milk applied continuously. After a while it seemed
to have a tendency to heal. We ran the base line up through Kanab and
at the head of it pitched
