Walter Camp's notes on comments made by Pvt. Thomas Blake from IU, UE130, with my annotations in brackets:
[Blake] Says [that Pvt.] John Sullivan's horse became frightened before [the dismounted] skirmish line [was] formed. Sullivan [was] carried [by his panicked horse] toward [the] village and [was] never seen again. [Note: Despite Blake's account here, Sullivan's body was found in the bottom of a washout entering the river just north of Reno's retreat crossing, suggesting that he was actually killed during the retreat from the valley, and not at the start of Reno's valley fight. His body was identified the number on his pistol and carbine found by his body according to information provided by Sgt. Alcott of A Co.]
[Pvt.] Francis M. Reeves [of A Co. was] severely wounded [by a shot in his left front side and later by a shot in the thigh] in [the] timber [position] before [Reno's] retreat [from the valley] started.
No sutler [was] on the LBH expedition [traveling] with the column.
[He] says [that Lt. James] Calhoun has a brother in the service as an [Infantry] officer.... [Ed. This is Lt. Frederick Calhoun of the 14th Infantry. He had previously applied for a commission in the 7th Cavalry, which was vehemently opposed by Capt. Benteen.]
"The more I see of movement here (Little Big Horn Battlefield), the more I have admiration for Custer, and I am satisfied his like will not be found very soon again.”

"With our cherished ones deliverance within our grasp we waited breathless two hours, for the order that never came."
