July 23, 1841 — Mountain Men

Friday, 23rd. Went to Green river — distance 8 miles — spent the remainder of the day trading with the hunters.

I don’t imagine John Bartleson had any problem selling the whiskey he brought with him to Fraeb’s hunters.

Mountain Men by Frederic Remington — “I took ye for an Injun!”
