[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 25th We spent about 2 Hours searching for a ford. The water was cold. Some snow on the ground in the morning. It disappeared after the sun got up. We found a ford and all got over much better than we expect[ed?]. Some of the first teams got down & had to be helped out.
As soon as the road was packed we went well. We travled 10 miles & camped on the platt at an old Indian town. A Company was fitted out for winter Quarters. I wrote A letter to Mrs Woodruff. 10.
