I with Hi.' request, ah follows :
In the Winter of 1847 Hint lH-tH, t ho
writer WM living in the vicinity of Ku
gene, in fact, I made my home with Mr.
I Kogcne F. Skinner and family, the
founder of the town. There wan 00

As I said above 1 was living in tlmt

the tirst large branch ol the Willamette
above Oregon City on the east siile. Re
member there was no mail communica
tion in Oregon at that time.
In the spring of 184S, the said In, In,
passed up through the Willamette Vui
ley on t lie east side, and after they got
into what is now l.aue county, they lelt
j a plain trail of depredation, in the re
mains of the settlers' stock they bad
I slaughtered. In the meantime, there
w.'R some trouble with coast Indian in the
: Muddy Settlement, a branch of Marys
RlrOT that tlows into the Willamette
. River just above Corvallis.
The citizens on Muddy formed a small
j company aud pursued these Indians bol
! failed to get theoi.
Those Indians that passed up through
the valley were said to tie Klamath
Indians and I presume they were. The
i company that failed to get the coast In
dians sent word up to the few settlers
I about Eugene that they intended to pur
sue the Klamath Indians, thinking they
could hem them iu at the head of the
valley on account of the snows, ami
j wished some one to notify the few simi
liters of Eugene that they were coming
I and at what lime they would lie alum:.
! At this time there were but the oicii
w ithin twenty-seven miles of Eugene on
tliu north, and live men in the l'lensant
Hill Settlement, twelve miles east, and
one living at the main forks of the
river opposite Pleasant Hill. 1 bad nut
purctiaseil me a horse yet, eo Mr. Skin
ner told me I could take his horm and
notify the men, but unless I could get
another horse in the Pleasant Hill
tlemeut, not to go any further as his
horee was too tender footed to make the
I got a tirst-class horse, but the only
man 1 could get was Mr. Ilristow. Three
had gone below for provisions and that
lelt OM man in the settlement. Mr.
Hills, the only resident of the main fork,
happened to be in the Pleasant Hill
Settlement, and as it was some time
after night when I got there, Mr. Hills
and I stayed over iiigtit with ttie Hriggs
families, father and son both had fami
lies. I'he following morning Kristow,
Hills and myself struck out for the mid
dle forknear Mr. Hills residence, he bal
ing a dugout there by means of which we
could cross the river and tow our horses
across i tie remainder ol ttie company I
eiiwcteil to crosn where Sprintielil now
ib. They tried to swim their horseB in a
bunch but could not make 1 hem take
water, so were compelled to tow them
one at a time by the side of the canoe.
Finally, when we all got together at Mr.
Hills' residence there wen, seventeen of
us all pretty well mounted and each I
armed with a single motile loading rifle
we leu our rcii.le.vot.s about noon
Hjej took ttie trail of the Indians, of
which there were twenty-.loiir mounted.
I t ey had passed some days in advance

came to a branch that was so full of drift
Wood that we could not cross with our
horses, but had no difficulty in getting
across ourselves. We left our horses in
charge of two men, while tin; rest struck
out on foot and followed the Indian trail
until it crossed the river, and there we
were brought to a hault. Thu weather
had turned very warm and the molting
ol the snow made the river so full, thai
the most experienced men of the party
came to the conclusion that we could do
Wu learned later that we could not i
have caught the Indiana anyway as thev
had a trail on which they could DM kt I
any time of the year. Frances Fuller-1
V ictor mentions the trouble with those 1
Indians on the Lower Willamette in her
history of the early Indian wurs of On:
On our return we took things more
leisurely. We did mil allow any grus
grow under our horses feet on our way
up, but on our way back took a view ol
the possibilities of the country. 1 pre
