Mormon History, Sep 22, 1848

[Hosea Stout Diary] Friday Sep 22nd 1848. This morning while we were geathering up our oxen to go back after Br Groves we were agreeable disappointed to see him drive up having fixed in his waggon toungue again & borrowed some oxen of those who were coming on as it was down hill all the way & thus came on so we all traveled on again and crossing another mountain we at last came to Little Kanyon Creek the last one we had to cross which was a bad road having to cross it about 18 times over bad places and at night encamped at the mouth of the Cannon 5 miles from the City and turned our cattle agan on the mountains for feedwaited with impatience for morning which would terminate our journey.
I was very sick all day with the head ache which made this a tedious day for me.
