Wray and the other soldiers continue their pursuit of the French through the "dreadful, dreary, desert" that seemed "almost like fire" with very little water for 14 days. Because of the great heat the soldiers marched at night and camped during the day. On the fifth day of the march they arrived at Moses's well where they were able to refresh themselves.
