April 21, 1862, I left Copenhagen the second time, for Zion, In charge of a company of saints, numbering 484 souls. This was the fourth and last company that started from Copenhagen to Zion in the spring of 1862. . . . The four companies we made into two at Florence. C.A. Matson was appointed captain over one and myself over the other, and our great chief John Van Cott, presided over both as we traveled close together. We arrived safely at Salt Lake City Sept. 22, 1862.
