Clark was on the Gallatin River near the Three Forks of the Missouri on July 14, 1806.

I saw Elk, deer, Antelopes, and a great deel of old Signs of buffalow. their roads is in every direction. The Indian woman informs me that a fiew years ago Buffalow was very plenty in those plains. Vallies quite as high as the head of Jeffersons River.
