We were thankful to have left it at the first tip. Mr. Cowan was lifted to a more comfortable position by the road-side. Not long after, a horseman leading a pack animal came along. Our driver borrowed the horse, making the trip to Fort Ellis and back in the shortest possible time and returning with an ambulance. The seven miles seemed long ones, and Page 23 before we reached Bozeman Mr. Cowan was almost exhausted, his wounds bleeding and needing attention. He was carried by careful hands to a room in the hotel as soon as the crowd had thinned somewhat.

We were anxious to get home and very glad of so good an opportunity. The Englishmen and their guide also decided to return to Bozeman. Wonderland had lost its attractions for the nonce. A somewhat amusing incident occurred on the down trip. We had traveled only a few miles when the guide for the Englishmen declared he had sighted Indians through his field glass in the direction of the trail over which we had come the night previous. He was quite positive, although no one else could see them. Finally he made a detour in that direction.

Of them we learned that General Howard was closely following the Indians. Many of their actions were thus accounted for. The soldiers kindly prepared supper for us. I remember being nearly famished. Camp had been made for the night but was quickly abandoned, and arrangements made for quick travel. We were mounted on good horses, and the poor old ones, that had done us good service, notwithstanding their condition, were turned out to graze to their hearts content. As we were about to move off, a man came hurrying down the trail.
