I stoped in the Gravis near St. Louis until the beginning of April 1852[.] I then left with a company of saints with a train for Utah[.] We traveld by ox teams from near St. Louis Mo. to Salt Lake City Utah a distance of about 1500 miles. We had many Pleasure days on traveling and some trouble[.] after traveling over 4 months we arived in Salt Lake City some time in the month of August 1852
