Overland in 1846: Diaries and Letters of the California-Oregon Trail - Vol. 2

L'Envoi: Errata

I take leave of this book in parting with the index, and I am assured that readers will find it a happy hunting ground for large and small mistakes, all of which reflect upon my intelligence and industry. I invite hunters to share their bag with me, and by way of opening the season, call attention to the following:

p. 26, Note 7. For "Poughskeepsie" read "Poughkeepsie"; and for "1922" read "1932."

p. 54, last paragraph. For "Hastings conducted" read "the wagons Hastings conducted passed down the canyons of the Weber."

p. 57, line 5. For "south" read "north."

p. 90, Note 41. For "Thomas" read "John."

p. 107, line 3. For "site" read "sight."

p. 289. The bracketed date "[August]" is insufficient correction for "20th of September;" compare Reed's diary.

p. 377, Note 59. For "Coldstream Creek" read "Coldstream Valley."

p. 378, Note 60. The location of Mule Springs is carelessly stated; refer to p. 452, Note 3, for better information.

p. 401, Note 10. For "December" read "November."

p. 413, Note 76. For "the following month" read "later in the month."

p. 447, Note 10. For "Whig interests" read "published in the Whig interest."

p. 448, Note 116. Reed participated not in the Natividad campaign of mid-November, 1846, but in the Santa Clara campaign of early January, 1847. (It will be seen that in this book I have been decisively defeated by Natividad.)

p. 774, Note 151. For "John" read "William J."

Trouble with names may be observed here and there. Thus proper spellings are: (p. 104) Deslauriers; (p. 105) Keithly; (p. 106) P. D. Papin; (p. 350) Rhoads; (p. 391) Robidoux; (p. 397) Rickreall [in the second name]; (p. 399) Gary; (p. 401) Boggs's and Ames's; (p. 410) Buckelew; (p. 453) Moutrey; (p. 471) Quivvey; (p. 760) Charles M. Weber; (p. 794) Burger.

Here and there words have crept into or out of the text with no harm done. I am charmed with one typographical error; on p. 408, Note 52, "ruddy" was originally "muddy." After further reflection, I feel that I should have followed Marcus Whitman rather than Peter H. Burnett, and on p. 116 indicated that the families who wintered at Waiilatpu in 1846-1847 numbered six, not five.
