Fort Pitt, Day 40

10 Jul, 1841

John Flett:

When a crossing was at last effected [Sic.], we passed on through open country until we arrived, on the 28th of June, at Fort Charlton, on the banks of the great Saskatchewan. We secured some horses and replenished our stock of provisions, and on the 30th resumed our journey. Dangers were now thickening around us.
