A cool windey morning   we loaded our Canoes and Set out at 9 oClock, a. m.    as we were about to Set out 3 canoes from above and 2 from below came to view us   in one of those Canoes I observed an Indian with round hat Jacket & wore his hair cued   we proceeded on river inclosed on each Side in high Clifts of about 90 feet of loose dark coloured rocks   at four miles we landed at a village of 8 houses on the Stard. Side under Some rugid rocks,  Those people call themselves Chil-luckit-te-quaw, live in houses Similar to those described, Speake somewhat different language with maney words the Same & understand those in their neighbourhood   Cap Lewis took a vocabilary of this Language   I entered one of the houses in which I saw a British musket, a cutlash [cutlass] and Several brass Tea kittles of which they appeared verry fond   Saw them boiling fish in baskets with Stones, I also Saw figures of animals & men Cut & painted on boards in one Side of the house which they appeared to prize, but for what purpose I will not venter to Say,--.   here we purchased five Small Dogs, Some dried buries, & white bread made of roots, the wind rose and we were obliged to lie by all day at 1 miles below on the Lard. Side.  we had not been long on Shore before a Canoe came up with a man woman & 2 children, who had a fiew roots to Sell, Soon after maney others joined them from above, The wind which is the cause of our delay, does not retard the motions of those people at all, as their canoes are calculated to ride the highest waves, they are built of white cedar or Pine verry light wide in the middle and tapers at each end, with aperns, and heads of animals carved on the bow, which is generally raised.[See February 1, 1806 for description.] Those people make great us of Canoes, both for transpotation and fishing, they also use of bowls & baskets made of Grass & Splits [Bark splits likely from the roots of Western Redcedar, which was used extensively in Indian basketry.] to hold water and boil their fish & meat.   Maney of the nativs of the last Village Came down Set and Smoke with us, wind blew hard accompanied with rain all the evening, our Situation not a verry good one for an encampment, but Such as it is we are obliged to put up with, the harbor is a Safe one, we encamped on the Sand wet and disagreeable   one Deer killed this evening, and another wounded near our Camp.

Just before day light there was a shower of rain; but at sun rise the morning was fine and clear. At 8 o'clock we embarked, went about 4 miles, and halted at a small village of the natives and got some dogs from them. Here we stayed about an hour and proceeded on again for about a mile, when we were compelled to stop on account of the wind, which blew so hard ahead that we were unable to continue our voyage. In the course of the day there were some showers of rain. In the evening one of the men went out and killed a fine deer. We were in a good safe harbour and remained there all night, accompanied by the natives.

The wind ceased blowing the latter part of last night; when it began to rain and continued raining moderately till morning; when we loaded our Canoes, and set out on our Voyage at 9 oClock A.M.   the wind rose again, & blew from the Westward.   We proceeded on, <and> about 4 Miles, when we halted at an Indian Village of 6 lodges, where we saw an Old British Musquet, a Sward, Copper tea kettles &ca.   We bought of the Natives at this place 5 fatt dogs, some Root bread and several other Articles.--

We continued on our way a short distance further down the River, when the Wind rose so high from the Westward, & the Waves ran also so high, that our officers thought it dangeous to proceed.  We came too with our Canoes under a Clift of rocks, which lay on the South side of the River.  We had several squalls of wind during this day.   We encamped on the So. side of the River.  One of our party killed one deer, & wound another; in the Evening, near a small pond; a short distance back from the River, which deer he brought to our Camp.--  We had a number of the natives to visit us after we had encamped.--
