In the spring of 1849 my husband returned, and we started for Salt Lake City, arriving in the Valley September 22. The captain of our company, Samuel Gulliege [Gully], died on the way and my husband was appointed in his place. We suffered much with sickness. Messrs. Livingston and Kinkeid, among the first merchants to come to Salt Lake City, traveled with us. They helped us very much. Among all our hardships and exciting times with the Indians and the buffalo, we had some good times, rejoicing in our testimonies of the truth and the goodness of the Lord to us.
