On May 20,1804 we set off forwards with my friend William Clark .We set off at 12 o'clock.We had 35 men to set off with us. Clack's slave York was the translator to speak to the Indians .we are now setting off to St.Louis now that we have no time to be lost.We walked in the rain. Walked in all kinds of good and bad weather.
