The Clinton men started from Carlyle with six days' provisions and forage for their horses at their own expense, and the officers have not drawn any extra rations of any kind during the campaign, having only drawn one single ration for each day; the company only three rations of corn for their horses. The company was organized the 23d of May, took up their march the 28th, and mustered into the service the 21st of June. The company being discharged, drew twelve days' rations. The officers only drew a single ration. Arrived at Fort Wilbourn on the 15th of June, 1832.
