Moved to Iowa. Was taken sick. Remained for one month or six weeks. Recovered of sickness and went to Winter Quarters. Suffered with sickness, and family, seven at a time. Spent the winter at Winter Quarters somehow.
Next spring fitted out for the West six or eight weeks after the pioneers. Travelled a trackless corse part way. Met with many Indians. Got some bufalow roabs and mocissons cheap. Something new every day.
Arived in Salt Lake 30th of September 1847. All well but teams worn down.
