Mormon History, Jul 1, 1846. Wednesday.

[William Clayton Journal] P. P. Pratt passed about 6 o'clock. We afterwards learned that he was going on express to Pisgah to raise the 500 volunteers to go to Santa Fe. After traveling about 7 miles we rested with Brother [William?] Weeks and ate breakfast, then went on till 2 o'clock and stopped to feed. We continued on till dark . . .
