January 18, 1873: Day 16 of our journey. A hellish day. I am surprised to be still alive. We were harried by the Griggs Gang. But the heat was such that we were unable to flee at full speed, fearing we would ride our horses to death. By a miracle we suffered no losses. To my great vexation, however, we have not reached town, though I fancy I can see it in the distance.
