Struck camp and started for Mata Moras but last night having taken the wrong road at the little Colorado we traveled toward Point Isabel. Arriv ed at the camp of Maj Hays about 7 miles from the point and pitched our camp this being the only place that we can get wood and water This wood we have to pick up on the shore of the cayune We find a number of our acquaintances in the Washington and other companies that are camped here.
