Jenkins, David, [Reminiscences], in "Utah Pioneer Biographies," 44 vols., 15:45-46.
While hunting rabbits one day, I encountered a large rattlesnake, the first I had seen. I killed it and took it to camp, and gave it to the captain, who made oil out of it. It had nine rattles which I preserved.
We saw on the road, immense herds of buffalo, some of which were killed by the company hunters.
We reached Salt Lake in August, and there the company broke up and went to different places.
