June 10 th 1867 I left father, mother, brothers and Sisters and my childhood friends to come to Zion not knowing the hardships I would have to endure before reaching my destination.

Arriving at Gotenborg I went on board the steamer Vensborg sailing to Copenhagen Denmark. By sailing over the North sea we reached Liverpool England and from this point I borded the steamer Manhattan for New York. It was the first steamer to take Mormon Converts across the Atlantic Ocean

Arriving at New York on July 4, 1867. I stayed there one day and then taking another boat up the Hudson River to Albany from where I went by rail to Buffalo and Niag[a]ra Falls then to Detroit, Chicago and St. Joseph. From St Joseph to Omaha Neb. from there to North Platt[e] Nebraska. At North Platt this company laid for four weeks waiting for supplies and ox teams to take up across the plains. In those four weeks thirty-two children died of mountain fever and summer complaint

We then journeyed on and after leaving North Platt four days we received news that the Indians had burned North Platt

We next arrived at Julesborg from there I walked every step of the way to Salt Lake City. We arrived there on the 5th Oct 1867 in time to attend Conference.
