“The Milwaukie (sic: Milwaukee) Sentinel, of the 10th inst., says: Two more “California wagons” left our city yesterday, the one belonging to Mr. Jennings, of East Troy, the other to Mr. C. Nunn, of this city. Mr. Nunn takes with him his wife, brother and father; the latter, eighty years old. They go by land to Galena, thence down the Mississippi to St. Louis, where they intend to lay in their property of provisions, and then push for Independence and the Plains. For the information of California emigrants, we may add that a letter has been received from Mr. Joseph Ludington, who left here some weeks since for El Dorado, stating that supplies of all kinds can be purchased at St. Louis on the most favorable terms.”
