Transcript for "Elder Jacob Hofheins," The Mormon, 11 April 1857, 2
AT Conference, on Sunday last, Elder Hofheins was released from his mission to the German population of this State, and left for the West on Wednesday evening. Bro. Jacob has labored diligently while he has been in the State, both at Toms River and New York. Believing he would be an efficient assistant in the emigration across the plains, we have started him thus early for the frontiers. Bro Jacob returns to his family and the Church in Zion with our approbation and blessing.
