Mormon History, Jun 25, 1846. Thursday.

[William Clayton Journal] This morning arose at 4 o'clock and moved our wagon a little to fresh grass to let the horses feed they being tied to it. It is fair but cloudy. We started again at half past 5 and traveled till 12 then rested till 2 and then traveled till dark making 31 miles. We camped just beyond the Indian village in the midst of a severe thunder storm. It rained most of the day and the roads were bad.
