Historic Diaries: Marsh, 1834

Preparing for Another Journey

Editor's Note:

Rev. Marsh has decided to give it one more try, and to see if Powesheik would be willing to have a missionary and school at his village. On the following day he will travel overland from the vicinity of modern Rock Island, Ill., to Cedar Rapids, Iowa (map).



Tues [Aug] 26th


Passed the day in obtaining horses and preparing to visit the villages upon the Ioway and Ceder rivers. Passed the night at the Agency house.
