... later that same day (continued from yesterday’s excerpt) …

“I am now at Blue Creek station. Here I have access to water, taken and brought by rail from Bear river to this station. My first care was to water my cattle, as they have had none since yesterday morning, except the little salt water I gave them. I gave each two pails at once and after a little while gave them two more and then their grain. But they wanted more water, so I again gave them two pails each. This appeared to satisfy them.”
