Transcript for "Bound for Utah," The Mormon, 13 Sept. 1856, 2
AMONGST the most notable arrivals of last week were a company of missionaries returning from Europe to their homes in Utah. Among the number we notice Elders Richards, Felt, Young, Spencer, Wheelock, Dunbar, McAllister, Ferguson, Grant and others. Elder Erastus Snow also came up but does not go out.
To-day they start across the plains; they are an intelligent, sociable, pleasant set of fellows—we wish them a safe and quick journey to their friends. Two large hand-cart trains also arrived last week, a portion of whom will still press forward. They are a hardy, industrious, determined set of fellows, and would make a profitable accession to any country.—[Council Bluffs Bugle, Aug. 26.
