[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 22d We rose this morning & found my mules were gone. We Hunted but Could find no trace of them. We thought they were stolen. It soon commenced raining hard.
Br Carter & myself took each of us a horse & rode in the cold rain about 25 miles around the country but still could get no trace of them. But in the evening one of the Neighbors found them about 6 miles down the creek. (25) m.
