Mormon History, Mar 29, 1847

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 29th I met this morning with the Presidency, captains of Hundreds & Pioneer Company to prepare for starting. It was finally agreed that all that were ready start for the Horn to morrow morning. It is fine good weather. I made a bed this morning for sowing salit. Two mules were hitch to a Blacksmith shop & puled it down the timbers fell upon several at work in the shop. A large stick fell upon the head of Br Little John Utley & was a wonder that it had not broke his head & neck both. It injured him severely. He was Carried into the House. Several of us laid hands upon him & I Prayed with him.
