... three young men arrived... bringing with them a steel trap belonging to one of our party ... I think we can justly affirm to the honor of these people that they are the most hospitable, honest, and sincere people that we have met within our voyage.

At the second lodge we passed an Indian man gave Captain Clark a very elegant grey mare for which he requested a vial of eyewater which was accordingly given him…Captain Clark gave an Indian man some volatile liniment to rub his knee…The fellow soon after recovered and has never ceased to extol the virtues of our medicines and the skill of my friend Captain Clark as a physician.
--Meriwether Lewis
