Mormon History, Oct 31, 1847

[Hosea Stout Diary] Sunday Oct 31st 1847. North wind & cold day. All felt uncommonly well and joyful. We started at 9 oclock and drove very hard untill we arrived at mill creek two miles above Winter Quarters stoping a short time at the papea. The company was strung along for miles according to the speed of their teams or the anxiety of their drivers
We were however formed at mill creek and waited untill all came up, when we were formally dismissed by the President with the blessings of God. He said that our coming enabled them to come home at least five days sooner. I went from there home and found all well
