Mormon History, Sunday, Feb 14, 1847.

[Apostle Willard Richards Journal] Winter Quarters. Strong south wind. Dr. Richards took medicine last night, lay in bed all day, arose about 7 and was shaved by George Wardle. Elder Woodruff called about 6 p.m. High council at 6. President Young directed the bishops to make a feast or picnic for the poor and women whose husbands were in the army. Council had conversation about advising the police, and President Young gave instruction about the children. About 8, President Young and Lyman and Bishop Whitney called at the office with a letter from Orden and Estill, merchants at Eston Mills, Missouri, which the Dr. answered. President said that the Otoes and Omahas had united and that Jim Dick and other Indians were at his house and he must go home and see to them about 9.
