P.S. I got into trouble with John Collins when we tapped into the whiskey barrel and got drunk in June 1804. Even though I misbehaved and all the men were angry with me for a time, I was able to stay with the permanent party and go to the Pacific. After our return I lived in the St. Louis area, but then walked off the stage of history.
