Mormon History, Oct 30, 1847

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 30th We travled 15 miles & camped on the east side of the Horn. We met in the Afternoon & arange-ments was made about going to Winter Quarters on the morrow the order of going &c. 15.
A company of about 20 waggons arived about sundown from winter Quarters to meet us. Brothers Cutler Whitney & many other friends were among the number & we were truly glad to meet with them. They brought Corn for our Horses & food for ourselves & we had quite A feast for supper. Br John Fulmer gave me an account of the progress of the Mexican war. That Gen. Scott had taken Mexico with the loss of 1,700 men killed & many wounded & no prospect of peace. We spent A good share of the night in conversing upon a variety of subjects. 15.
