Mormon History, Jul 8, 1846

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 8th Early this morning some 50 Indians said to belong to the Sous passed our camp for the east. They said they were going to meet the Mormon Chief. Supposed they ment President Young who had gone to Mt Pisgah. They were A Noble looking Indian.
We remained stationary to day to let our cattle rest. I was Called to administer to Sister Grant who was in travel. She had A Daughter born in 5 minutes After I left. Thus the Saints bear Children by the wayside like the Children of Israel in the wilderness. We lay still through the day in consequence of the hot weather.
