Mormon History, September 1847

W. W. Phelps buys Ramage press and other needed printing supplies in Boston and ships them (probably by rail, then down the Ohio River and up the Missouri River by steamboat) to Kanesville (Council Bluffs), Iowa, across the river from Winter Quarters. It remains in Kanesville in boxes for nearly two years until it is sent overland in wagons to Salt Lake in April 1849.
