Schoolcraft's Ozark Journey


Friday, January 29th, 1819

I was on the road toward St. Michael this morning before day-light. After travelling a mile, it commenced raining, and poured down incessantly, until I reached the next house, being seven miles. There, as the rain continued, I remained until the next day.
