June 6, 1841

Sunday, 6th. This morning was extremely cool for the season; 25 more of the same Indians came up with us.

Only a few days before Bidwell wrote about the oppressive heat. Prairie weather was changeable.

The same Cheyenne Indians who had accosted Nicholas Dawson were still following them — to assess and keep an eye on these strangers, or to see what could be picked up along the way.
