On arriving at the Allegheny River they halted long enough to build a flat-boat and then embarked for the long and tedious journey, drifting with the current of the stream all the way to the mouth of the Little Miami, which they reached and turned into on the morning of May 13th, 1796, (this was the seventeenth birthday of Aquila Durham, the youngest child of Joshua, ...)
