[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 27th I done up A bundle of papers for Dr Richards And some Articles for Father Woodruff, Sisters Smoot, Edwards A Harris & M. J. w[ere?] things sent by Mrs Woodruff. I recieved A letter from Mrs Sayers & wrote one to Leonard Hardy to inform him of the death of A sister Courier at Bradford & wished him to come & preach her sermon.
We had most A tedious storms of rain a wind through the day & night. Many lives will be lost in the storm.
