Sister Davis and myself left Healdsburg with our horse and phaeton [and] rode thirty miles to Sister Chapman’s. We intended to take the boat that night, but the Donahue boat was still eight miles farther and we feared we could not reach it in time. We had a very pleasant visit with Sister Chapman and her family. Thursday we left the pleasant home of our sister’s for [the] Donahue boat. We had no trouble in getting our horse on the boat. Then the officials there took charge of him, so we had no more worry until we reached San Francisco. 4LtMs, Lt 46, 1884, par. 1
