My westward journal #19

8-20-1820

Dear journal,

We are in Oregon! We have finally reached our destination at last! It is amazingly beautiful and breathtaking. There are not really any words to describe it. Well, maybe a few: Brilliant, breathtaking, amazing. I have been waiting a long time for this day and it’s everything that my father expected! Now that we are here, we have big plans. First of all, father is planning to go to the nearest fort in Oregon to buy supplies to build a small cabin for him, mother, and myself. Jasper’s father is planning to do the same for his family. Second of all, mother wants more fresh food, but I don’t know where she’ll get that. I’m just glad we’re finally here! In Oregon!

Maggie, 10 years old
