This morning early a number of Indians, men, women, children, dogs, &c., passed down on the ice to join those that passed yesterday. We sent Sergeant Pryor and five men with those Indians to hunt. Several men with the venereal, caught from the Mandan women. One of our hunters, sent out several days ago, arrived and informs that one man - Whitehouse - is frostbitten and can't walk home.
