Last night, was a terrible night. I couldn’t sleep at all. It was really hot and really buggy. The mosquitos were so terrible, I couldn’t even sleep! Hopefully tonight I can get some sleep. Today we woke up at sunrise and packed everything up and now we’re traveling northwest. I hope we find some new species of animals to send to Thomas Jefferson. It is so fascinating to find new species of animals every day. Yesterday we found the Horned Toad, and Lewis found it to be quite interesting so he kept playing with it, and it bite him right on the finger. It was actually hilarious if I do say so myself.

We all saw the big brown things that Sergeant Charles Floyd had seen last night, the American Bison. Lewis said that he had never seen so many buffalo in one place at once, and he also said that there were easily 3,000 of them. It was amazing. Unfortunately,...
