[Hosea Stout Diary] Friday June 2nd 1848. Prest Kimball crossed today. At 4 oclock all the waggons on the other side of the river were crossed.
Capt Lee has had hard work to raise his 50. The people do not like to go with him. Zera Pulcifer starts today with his Company.
I was in the 4th Company of Carns 50 which were mostly police. We appointed A. L. Fulmer for our Captain of ten.
Today Elders Hyde & Woodruff accompanied by several more & some of the merchants from Winter Quarters made us a visit[.] W. Woodruff took supper with me when I spent an agreeable hour I stood guard till half past twelve.
