    Excerpt from Narrative of an Expedition to the Source of St. Peter's River, Lake Winnepeek, Lake of the Woods, &C, Vol. 2 of 2: Performed in the Year 1823

    The first day of our journey was unpleasant; it was across dry prairies. We stopped to dine upon the banks of what is termed Mushtincha Watapan, (hare river.) At the time that we crossed it, the stream had disappeared; a lit tle stagnant water, collected in hollows, offered but an um pleasant drink for ourselves and our horses. This valley is a mere trench in the prairie, into which the waters collect after heavy rains; it affords them a passage to the more per manent streams. Its bed is about fifteen yards wide. The woods became very scarce as we advanced, only a féi'v points being seen at a distance; the plain upon which we were travelling was apparently boundless; it was covered with a short grass of a pale or yellowish-green hue. The eye of the mineralogist could not detect a single stone within a mile's travel, and the few that were observed during the day, were rolled and uninteresting. In some places pebbles were very thick, as if we had been travel ling upon the bed of some former river or lake; but the mind endeavours in vain to establish limits to the vast ex panse of water, which certainly at some former day over ¿owed the whole of that country.
