[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 22d I laboured Hard all day to get some Black-smithing done. At night I met the people to raise the 100 volunteer of mounted men. I addressed them (filled with the spirit of God) on the importance of complying with the request made & of assisting the Twelve & those associated with them to go to the Mountains & lift up the standard of Zion. I then Called for volunteers & about 60 followed me out in the line. We appointed the next evening to meet again.
