August 24, 1804:  We passed cedar bluffs on the north side, a part of which were burning; and there are here to be found mineral substances of various kinds.  There is also a quantity of small red berries, the Indian name for which in English means rabbitt berries.  They are handsome small berries and grow upon bushes about 10 feet high."  Sgt.
