Biography of Harvey Harris Cluff, circa 1910, 7-11.
The relief Party hastened <the following day> to found the emigrant in a most pitable state. Leaving supplies and help with Captain Willie’s company the relief party persued their hasty march on until the handcart companies were found at the upper crossing on the Platt[e] river where the snow storm had laid them up. The work that devolved upon the young men from there until all the emigrants reach West was truly wonderful: Carrying aged men women and children upon their backs crossing rivers, providing fuel, making fires and otherwise aiding in camp life. It was near the close of December when Harvy arived in Provo.
