Transcript for Bird, Harriet Goble, Autobiographical sketch, 1904, 4

We left Wyoming on the 17th of August and I, with several others, walked all the way to Weber, as there was no room in the wagons for the healthy ones. We crossed the plains in Warren Snow's company (the last company with ox teams for that season.) Part of the way a train of Gentiles joined us, which made our train five miles long. They joined us for safety, which was of mutual benefit as the Indians were very aggressive at that time.

We stayed a day or two at Weber, where we were met by several of the Saints sent by Brigham Young with wagons and teams to carry the sick, aged and weary the rest of the way, and very welcome they were. We reached Salt Lake Nov. 2, 1864.
