April 9, 1847
Summary: Friday. Playing in the band across the river.
Journal entry: Friday. Went with the Quadrille Band over the River as the twelve do not start for the Horn today. We played in the boat as we crossed, but in returning the wind was high, the boat heavily loaded with cattle and dangerous crossing.
