Comments

An early and valuable firsthand account of a journey to the land of the Mormons and a two months' residence there during 1855-1856. The author traveled overland from St. Joseph, Missouri to Salt Lake City, and then on to California only a year prior to the ill-fated Fancher train and their eventual massacre at Mountain Meadows. Flake/Draper 1252. Howes C286. Wagner/Camp 287:1. Scallawagiana 55. Wheat 910
