Mormon History, Sep 9, 1845
Brigham Young's convenes the Council of Fifty. They resolve "that a company of 1500 men be selected to go to Great Salt Lake valley and that a committee of five be appointed to gather information relative to emigration, and report the same to the council." Nauvoo Police Chief Hosea Stout writes: "went with Brother Harmon and Horr to see a boy look in a 'peep stone,' for some money which he said he could see hid up in the ground. He would look and we would dig but he found no money; he said it would move as we approached it."
