Diary of Ephraim Shelby Dodd, Co. D of Terry's Texas Rangers

Saturday, 31st—Details sent out to get all the provisions possible and return by 12 o’clock. I went to town, but did not get my horse shod, met the command as I went out, coming in. Went some ten or eleven miles and camped on creek on steep hillside. Rained all night. T and John Henry slept dry in my Yankee tent. Most Company got into stable and crib.
