- Company Unknown (1862)
We left, after extensive preparation, in the first independent company that ever crossed from Florence to Salt Lake City. Our expenses were all paid before we left Denmark. Our outfit consisted of a new shutter wagon, two yoke of oxen, and two cows. Besides this, we had a small stove, a sack of sugar, flour, and other eatables. We left Florence in the first part of August 1862. We arrived in Salt Lake Valley in the latter part of September. On the long trek, we saw many buffalo and Indians, but had no trouble with them.
