In year 1804
During this year we met a lot of tribes, lots of different plants and animals. Many of us were sick, it was difficult.
The 12th of june we met the Sioux tribe and three trappers. One of them was Pierre Dorion. Lewis and me convainced him to join us to serve as interpreter with Sioux because we didn't understand their language.
The 2nd and 3rd of August, we finally met the Otos and Missouris tribes. We had a good relationship and we exchanged lots of gifts. It was a really good moment for all of us and a good surprise.
The 20th of August was a very bad day, the worst of the expedition. One of us died. Charles Floyd had certainly appendicits. Further to this accident we called a river to his name in tribute. We were extremely sad and it was difficult to forget.
When the winter arrived, we decided to spend it in Fort Mandan. We met a Shoshone women called Sacagawea and her husband Toussaint Charbonneau. We would like to met his tribe because we needed horses and she served of interpreter. On february, Sacagawea gave birth with difficulty but the baby is in good health.
