May 30, 1807 Dry Camp


30th May, Saturday. Marched at five o’clock and arrived at the river Sabine at eight–forded it. Marched in the evening at four o’clock, at ten encamped at the Second Ridge without water. Distance 27 miles.

This is not the same Sabine River that today forms Texas’s eastern boundary. Pike is still in the Mexican province of Coahuila.
