We went with in about 35 miles of Denver and about the same distance of Chian, Wyoming. We drove rite across the place whare Genl. Custer made his last stand. I picked up lots of Gun Shels & arrow spikes whare they had that battle with the Indians. This Ranch we were driving to was in sight of the Black Hills. After branding the cattle at the Ranch we proceded to go to Chadren Neb. to take the train. As we went in to town there at Chadren it was snowing and it on the 4th day of September. Well we proceeded on the train around Omaha & Council Bluff Iowa and by way of Kansas City there on to F. Worth. So that ends another trip up the Western cow trail.
Here’s what’s next.
