[Apostle Willard Richards Journal] Mt. Pisgah. Clear and pleasant. South wind. About 10, Elder Kimball arrived and Presidents Young and Kimball met the brethren at the stand and Richards went to writing a letter to the Presidency at Mt. Pisgah at the house of General Rich, by instruction of President Young. Several speeches were made at the meeting, and 50 volunteered to enlist into the army. [At 3:30] 3Â½ p.m., George Langley started with the letter to Garden Grove. Brother Richards spent the p.m. and evening in writing for the council to the trustees at Nauvoo. President Young signed it at 11 (also on file). He also wrote to Edmund Ellsworth. The brethren counted and reported 205 wagons at Mt. Pisgah, which with three on the road and at headquarters made 1805 wagons.
