Brother G[eorge] Q[uayle] Cannon organised our company for Traveling. And appointed me captain of the first ten. We left the camp ground near Florence on the 20th of July And after a pleasant journey. Arrived in Great Salt Lake City on Friday the 5th of October.
My health on leaving England was very poor but it gradually improved on the journey. So was to enable me to marriage, and drive my own teams right through to the Valley.
