The party re-united

August 12, 1806

I was alarmed on the landing of the canoes to be informed that Captain Lewis was wounded by an accident... I examined the wound and found it a very bad flesh wound,... Captain Lewis informed me the accident happened the day before by one of the men, Peter Crusat, mistaking him in the thick bushes to be an elk...
--William Clark
