Mormon History, Apr 16, 1849

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 16th I left Hornerstown & rode with two young men to Toms River. Our road lay through A level pine forest about 30 miles almost one universal sand bed. There is A small village in the midst of the pine forest Called Manchester. I rode on a load of plank 3,500 lbs drawn by 4 mules with wide tire yet they sunk into the sand over the [b?]elly which made hard travelling. I called at Anthony Ivins And spent the night. 30 m.
I preached in the evening to the saints. I had a severe Cold And sore throat.
