We left on the 10th day of May in Captain [Abraham] Day's company of 50. We had five yoke of cattle, one span of ponies and three wagons, and four cows. My father [Abiah Wadsworth] drove two yoke of oxen and two cows and I drove three yoke of cattle and two cows. My mother [Eliza Ann Hardy Wadsworth] drove the ponies. We all felt fine and had a fine trip with no accidents or sickness on the trip across the plains. We stayed in Salt Lake one night.
