August 20, 1805:  Chief Cameahwait, Sacagawea's brother who had never traveled to the Pacific Ocean, informs Lewis of his understanding of the route to the Pacific Ocean :  "I then enquired the state of the country on either side of the river but he could not inform me.  he said there was an old man of his nation a days march below who could probably give me some information ...  the Chief further informed me that he had understood from the persed nosed (Nez Perce) Indians who inhabit this river below the rocky mountains that it ran a great way toward the seting sun and finally lost itself in a great lake of water which was illy taisted, and where the white men lived."
