On the 15th, Elder Samuel A. [Amos] Woolley, from his mission to Hindostan, and Dr. Jeter Clinton, from his mission in the States, arrived from the same company; and on the 16th several more of the company rolled onto the public square in the 17th ward, among whom were Elders Enoch B. Tripp, Elisha Edwards, and Edwin Whiting, from their mission in the States.
The remainder of the company arrived on the 18th. The missionaries seemed much rejoiced with the privilege of again greeting their families and friends in the mountains, and of participating in the blessings which only saints enjoy.
Elders Whiting and Edwards, with highly commendable forethought and care, brought several grafts from the choice varieties of apple trees in the Western Reserve, Ohio.
