[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 21st After being blockaded with sickness with my children & friends in Scarboro for near a month & surrounded by great darkness during the time for it seems as though the destroyer was trying to hedge up my way to hender me on my mission, & whare the destroyer is their is darkness & sorrow, yet this morning I feel like bursting their bands & going my way.

I took cars at Saco in company with Mrs Woodruff & our youngest Child Susan Cornelia to start on our way for New York & set sail for England. We rode to Haverhill & stoped & rode to Georgetown in a waggon with Elder Hardy to Father Holmes & we spent the night with them & had an interesting Church meeting with the Saints. I ordained Elder Nathaniel Holmes to the office of High Priest & one Elder 1 Priest & one deacon. They contributed $3.50 cts to assist me on my Journey. Distance 75 mi.

+ I wrote a letter to Hiram Clark. Fare $6.50 to Boston. (5)

-- Nov 22, 1844
[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 22d Took cars. Rode to Boston. Stoped at No 8 East Orange street at Br Jacob Phelps. Mrs Woodruff was taken sick as soon as she got there. Went to bed. Vomited & felt some better.

I met with the Church in the evening. 8 was cut off from the Church who had joined Sidney Rig-don. Sidney Rigdon was cut off from the Church, for trying to divide the Church, calling Joseph Smith the fallen Prophet, & illegally ordaining men to be kings & Priest unto God when he had not that office himself. He had been in a state of apostacy for five years, & was now cut off by the legal authorities of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. And since he has been cut off he is trying to draw away as many as he can after him & as fast as their are any apostitize from the faith they join him & those that are cut of from the Church & thus he is trying to build up a party unto himself.

The Church now seems to be firm in Boston. I had a good time with them. I spent the night at Br Phelps. Mrs Woodruff seemed much better in the evening. Distance of the day 35 m. (5)
