Friday 12th Octr. [Palmyra, Missouri.]
Early this morning we prepared for marching and at 8 ½ oclock were under way. We passed through Palmyra at 10 and had little difficulty in preventing the excesses of the Indians. After we arrived in camp, however, 2 or 3 Indians were found to have procured liquor, and became much intoxicated. They were immediately arrested and put under guard.
