The Schnively Expedition. 271
When the Indians discovered our party, they disappeared, and car-
ried the cattle belonging to the emigrants into the Guadalupe moun-
tains. We had a bunch of beef steers, and we fitted the emigrants
out with a wagon and steers to draw it. They pulled them through
to Fort Sumner, New Mexico.
After resting on the Pecos for a few days we marched on to Eagle
Springs, in the Rio Grande country, where we were directed to
look for the rich gold mine, but our search was in vain. We hunted
several days in the surrounding hills for miles around. We then
moved several miles south and made a number *arches, but found
no gold, nor any indications of any. Finally the men, becoming
disheartened, disbanded, some going to California and Arizona, the
majority returning to Texas.
Here’s what’s next.
