Tuesday Apl 27th 1790. Embarked after getting some Sturgeon & passed a plain to the East (he must mean West) in about an Hour where it appears to be a wintering place (Grandville?) The River still larger & a good smooth Current but a North Wind strong against us (but their direction is west?) the Course West & the River larger & larger to the mouth & surrounded with Pine on all Sides with Meadows & small Lakes & very wide at the Entrance of the Lake (Lake Michigan) where we arrived about Sun Set & found Mr Langlade who appeared to be very friendly & promised to get me some Gum. Encamped on the other (north) Side there being many Indians with him.
My Note: Thus after 20 paddle days and 30 cross-peninsula days and 34 total days the Heward expedition had reached Lake Michigan.
