"From the Out-Going Trains," Semi-Weekly Telegraph, 2 May 1866, 3.
FROM THE OUT—GOING TRAINS.—Through the politeness of President Young we are furnished with the following telegrams, received by him, from the trains en route for the frontiers:
Ham's Fork, May 17.
We leave here this morning, all well and in good spirits.
Little Sandy, May 16.
Our trains are here together. Boys all well. Trains in good traveling condition.JOS. S. RAWLINS,
W. P. CHIPMAN.
Little Sandy, May 17.
My train reached this place at eleven o'clock. All well. Stock doing well.
J. D. HOLLADAY.
South Pass, May 17.
All is well. Making good time. Our delay was for the best. Snow has been deep on the roads. Roads now good, which a week ago were under snow. We are the head train. Have heard nothing of Capt. Ricks. Peter Horrocks died yesterday. We sent his body back to Green River, with his wife, and telegraphed Goddard to bring out a coffin and come on till he met the corpse from Green River.
