us to go and have some Beer - and having
drank the beer we went out and met
the Prisr again. We then told him we
wanted to desert and asked him if
he could find us any Clothes he said
it was a very serious matter - that
he didn't think he could. that
he had a good many children to
support or something to that
effect - he then left us and soon
came back - he went away and
said he would be with us again
in a few minutes - he returned and
brought an old paper Cap with him.
he said that was all he could give
us. After that we left him - we
determined we wod. not go in on and
we journied on the road and met
2 young men who appeared to be
farmers - we had gone about a mile -

desert and we wanted clothes - they
took us to a Barn in the country and brought us
clothes- we left the Barn in the
