“[May 3, 1915] Packed mules with part of my outfit leaving tent and one chest below at Torontoy. Three of the mules got thru o.k. but the 3 last were shoved off the trail by their aparejos catching against jutting rocks. These three slid down thru a steep cornfield into the creek and lost their cargoes on the way. They were cut up about the head and eyes, but no limbs were broken. The men patched the loads the remaining 200 yards to the edge of the Montamya where we made camp.”
