[P. 65; entry includes a history of the Cayuses.] the principal settlement of this nation is on the banks of a small creek flowing into the Walla-Walla River, about twenty miles from its confluence with the Columbia. " Under the superintendence of the late Dr. Whitman, (their missionary,) this nation cultivated large fields of corn, wheat, potatoes, and other vegetables, which, with the fish that an- nually visit the streams watering their county, enabled them to live in comparative affluence. " They also raised large stocks of cattle and horses, which they bartered to the hudson's bay company for articles of european manufacture; so that they were not only above want but the wealthiest tribe in oregon."
