Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 4: A Monthly Magazine of Home Literature; Represents the Young Men's and Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement Associations of the Latter-Day Saints; February, 1883
I was mounted on a government mule at the time, and seeing that we were nearer the enemy than we were willing to be, I felt a little out of place. We, however, tried our old dodge of riding away over rough ground, and soon disappeared, leaving the impression that our numbers were far greater than they really were. In the evening, we returned to within half a mile of the main encampment, determined to take the troops' animals early on the following morning.
