Mormon History, Oct 26, 1847

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 26th We travled to day 20 miles & camped at the old Pawnee Missionary Station whare we stoped going up. The missionaris had been reinstated & built several buildings during the summer but the sioux had come down & drove them off again. We put our Horses into A small patch of oats. We went through the Corn fields that had been gatherd to try to glean a little corn for our Horses. I worked 3 Hours & got 1 1/2 bushels of ears. Distance of the day 20.
