Mormon History, Dec 1, 1849

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] Dec 1st I took Cars. Rode to Philadelphia. Spent the night at J Gibsons. I recieved 3 letters 2 from Mrs Woodruff & one from Dr Bernhisel containing a ticket to visit Girard College. I called upon Col Kane & saw A sleigh robe presented to him by Dr Bernhisel as A present from President Young. It contained 7 wolf skins & 10 Fox skins got up with great taste & splendor. It was worth $40. I wrote A letter to Mrs Woodruff.
