Mormon History, Sunday, Feb 7, 1847.

[Apostle Willard Richards Journal] Winter Quarters. Warm, pleasant day. Dr. [Richards] rose about 12 noon. Sister Anna Richardson, Callahan St. John, etc., were present. About 2, President Young called with a letter from John Miller, agent, by Mr. Grove. Brother Woodruff present, read Almanac for 47. David Crocket, Young, Richards, and Woodruff, and Levi Stewart went to see John D. Lee about 4. Dr. returned home and Henry Miller came in and told what he knew about the Omaha robbery. About 7, Richards, Young, Kimball, Woodruff, George A. Smith, A. Lyman, Henry Miller, Hezekiah Peck, and Levi Stewart were in the post office, and C. C. Rich came in, just arrived from Mt. Pisgah with mail of 24 letters. Voted that the map of Hancock County, drawn by Robert Campbell, be retained in the recorderÂ's office.
Dr. [Richards] wrote a letter to Major Miller and read it to council, also a letter to Arza Adams. President Young, who had been to the high council a few minutes, returned about 9 ½ [9:30] (all the other members had left) and signed the letter [?] and it delivered to Henry W. Miller to convey. Retired about 12.
