The horse didn't want to swim- First horse failed but second succeeded. 82 wagons crossed. "First try he pulled the old boat back to shore- second try, the current swept them down around the first great bend. The horse swam round and round the boat. He was finally turned loose to save him from drowning. The third try with a different horse, was successful. Both boat and horse crossed all right. What a place to take 82 wagons across!"
