The missionaries' camp was organized for traveling, Shadrach Roundy being appointed president. The company consisted of 35 men, with 12 wagons, 1 carriage, and 42 horses and mules. Among the Elders were Apostles Lorenzo Snow, Erastus Snow and Franklin D. Richards, Bishop Edward Hunter and other prominent men. It was the first company of missionaries sent from the Rocky Mountains.
