12—Drove 2 English miles and made camp. I could not continue my journal daily because I was sick at the stomach and felt constantly tired and ill and only craved rest when we arrived at Zion.
July 1861. I will note that we completed the trip from Florence, Nebraska, to Salt Lake City in 10 weeks. We have a very good captain, his name was [Samuel Amos] Wooley. He exercised solicitude for us both by day and by night. God bless him for all of his kindness to us.
Sept. 22. We arrived at Salt Lake City, Sept. 22, 1861, at 4 P.M.
