Josiah Gregg Quote
We were soon under way, and very little regret did I feel when I fairly lost sight of the city of scorpions. But I was not yet wholly beyond the pale of difficulties. Owing to the fame of the Indian hostilities in the North, it was almost impossible to procure the services of Mexican muleteers for the expedition.... I was of course delighted when I reached Chihuahua, on the 14th of May, in perfect safety.
