"Arrival," The Mormon, 5 July 1856, 2.
PRESIDENT ERASTUS SNOW has just walked in, unexpectedly indeed, to our sanctum, right from the cars, covered with dust, but feeling first-rate. He is on Deseret business to Boston, Washington and New York. He left the camp, Iowa City, on the 23d. Hand-cart business was very brisk; the third company was ready to start, which cleared the ground of P. E. Fund passengers. The health of the emigrants was good. The Thornton's company left Chicago for the camp the same day.
