Camped in canyon. After I had camped Madison John told me he had seen a white man on opposite side river going down. Tried to get Madison John to go back and find him. Finally had to give him $10 to go and show me where he saw him.... We rode down about six miles when we overtook him. He proved to be an escape prisoner from the enemy. His name was Harrison [Harmon]. Took him back to camp.... just after getting back to camp Paguite and the desperado came in with another escape prisoner (Chas Mann) who they had found above the camp. Man had a ball hole through his hat.
