[William Clayton Journal] The morning wet and cold. I went over to President Young and told him where I was going and what for. He said he would get the cattle for me. I also spoke to Heber [Kimball] and he said: "Go and prosper." At 11 I went to council and President Young, [Heber] Kimball and [John] Taylor concluded also to go to Pisgah after the cannon. I started at 2 o'clock it then being fair. At 5 o'clock I passed Father  Knowlton's company 13 miles from camp and at 7 passed the LaHarpe company and inquired of Brother  Burgham and  Freeman about Diantha but could not learn much from them . . .
