Mormon History, Apr 09, 1849

The First Presidency issues the "First General Epistle" from the Salt Lake Valley. The epistle brings Church members up to date by recounting all that had transpired in Winter Quarters, in the Salt Lake Valley, and with the Mormon Battalion and gives directions for Saints preparing to immigrate to Utah.
