Our company was made up of sixty-six wagons drawn by oxen, three or four yoke to each wagon. At night when we stopped for camp, Captain [Joseph S.] Rawlins would give orders to form a circle with the wagons as a protection against the Indians. We met many Indians on the journey, and the captain always gave them a little sugar to keep peace with them. We had what they called a ‘good trip’ having had very few deaths, and arrived in Salt Lake City, September 20, 1864, just four months and two days from the time we left our home in Scotland.
