And it was even better for the westward travelers since they were  
already carrying the flour anyway, and the flour helped cushion the  
eggs from being jarred and broken over the rough terrain.

This reminds me- totally OOP, but I have a book written by Ezra Meeker,
one of the more important pioneers to land in Washington state. In his
account of the trip out from the Midwest, he noted that his wife buried
eggs in the flour barrel, too keep them cool. Sounds like Eliza Jane
wasn't the first one to think of this!
