Larsen, Hans Peter, Autobiographical sketch, 1928 Feb.
A man by the name of Milo Andrus went to buy cattle and wagons for us and as soon as he arrived with them, we started across the plains. We were not familiar with driving the cattle and we had a terrible time for a few days. It took four men to a yoke of cattle (the cattle did not understand the Danish language).
We arrived in Salt Lake on the ninth of Sept. 1855, having been nearly a year on the road.
