Transcript for Rosenbaum, Morris D., Reminiscence and journal 1880 June-1881 Apr., 6

During this summer I heard of a mormon settlement in Carson Valley, and was greatly impressed to visit them to learn for myself what Kind of a people they are and learn some of their doctrine. . . .

I traveled through their settlement several times, and found them the best people I ever came in contact with.

My desire to be with this people increased and as they moved en masse for Salt Lake Valley this fall, I made up my mind to travel with them stop there during the winter, and return to my native country the following spring.

September 27. Left Carson Valley with the mormon company, Mr Wm Smith captain. I rode in his company the most of the way ahead of the train to find camping places. We came by the northern route, arrived at Brigham City November 2.
