[September Sun 2]
Stuck on sandbar 60 miles from
Circle City - now for 24 hours.
Will take to the small boats with
jurymen and drift down the river.
We can make the trip in 12 hours &
will reach there at midnight or later.
Left "Sarah" at 1:00 p.m. in two boats
- 5 men in my boat, 6 in the other. We
reached Circle City at 9 oclock, by
good rowing. I steered boat, &
we took lunch on beach about
6 oclock. Rather cold and stiff.
Was received and quartered in very
comfortable apartments by my friend
Mr. A. B. Hamilton of the N.A.T. Co.
