    • News from Utah: (From Deseret News): Arrival of the handcart company.-- On Friday evening, Mr. J. Harvey arrived from Bridger with the intelligence that Capt. Rowley, with the handcart company, would arrive near the city, Saturday evening, but would not come in till Monday morning. About 2 p.m., on Suuday, a messenger arrived from Elder Benson, who went out to there camp in the morning, announcing that the company were so anxious to come in that Capt. Rowley had resolved to accede to their wishes, and they would arrive at five o'clock. Immediately every house and vehicle in the city was seemingly in motion, conveying those who were anxious to witness the egress of the company from the kanyon in that direction. Within a few minutes of the designated time, the company arrived, escorted by two or three bands of music and a vast concourse of citizens of all grades and professions, and passing through the streets lined with anxious spectators, went to Union Square, accompanied by the thousands that joined the escort as they passed along. It was certainly a stirring scene, and such a one as has not been witnessed for some time past by this community, calling forth many expressions from the beholders, mostly of the joy, but some of detestation that human beings would endure so much, leave their houses in foreign lands, traverse the seas, and cross the deseret plains with handcarts, all for their religion. The liberality of the Saints was abundantly manifest on the occasion by the amount and variety of the provisions that were provided through the Bishops of the several Wards for the wayworn emmigrants composing the company, who were thus made welcome to these once, and will be again, ere long, peaceful vales; for surely "Mormonism," so called, is not dead, as some have supposed; and truth, seemingly crushed to earth, will rise again, although it has not in these days been overcome.

    • Immigration: Henry Hobbs 1835-1917, Journal of Henry Hobbs 1859-1860. (Manuscript Record, Unpublished)
      Journal of Henry Hobbs
      . . . Thursday the 7 of April. [p.13] Spent most of the day on board the ship. Went onshore to do some shopping for several of the sisters. Returned by the packet. Spent a comfortable evening with the Saints.
      Friday, the 8th of April. Several of the brethren were taken up by the police for leaving their families. Today we received instructions how to proceed on our way. We were told to be on in bed by 1/2 9 or 10 & a guard to be appointed to watch the sailors to see that they did not infringe on our rights. Also that we have prayers at 8 in the morning & 8 at night; Brother Nelsin was appointed captain & Brother Boyd [-] Harrison as his counselor. The ship was divided into 10 wards. Brother George [D.] Keaton was appointed president over the 1 cabin; Brother Henry Olpin over the [-] & Brother Henry Hartley over the bachelors hall. [p.14] We were told not to go on the poop deck. Neither to bother the sailors while they were attending to their duty & we were specially requested to take a good stock of patience & bear with each other's frailties & this in my experience is a wise course to adopt as those who have not got a sufficient portion of it will soon be filled with an evil spirit & lose the good one. A proclamation was read to the Saints by Brother Williams stating that if we would be obedient to the one appointed to lead us we should be blessed & prospered on our journey..........
      .......Monday the 23rd. Weather not quite so warm. About 2 p.m. our packet stayed still on account of a head wind. Last night quite a number of the sisters went on the upper deck to sleep. Today several hats has blown overboard. In the night while I was on guard I heard a row & made for it; when I got there I found the sailors arguing with some of the Danish. One threatened to use his knife. I immediately went for President Neslen & he came & spoke as one having authority he said they could not come their Missouri tricks with us & if they wanted a [p.64] row we were on hand. At 1 p.m. Frank Pittman took my place as captain of the guard.
      Tuesday the 24. Weather fine. Stopped a short time at Nebraska [City], a flourishing town about [-] miles from [-]. Saw Iowa Hills at the distance & much fine scenery. Yesterday a large stick of timber fell & struck Brother Keaton on the head & bent him double. But I am thankful to say he is recovering today. The folks were short of bread so we had to share the spoils.
      Wednesday the 25. Got up early & was very cold from sleeping on the deck. At 6 a.m. we landed in Florence. Built a fire & got a good breakfast out of doors & felt to thank God for the peaceful asylum we had been brought to & for being surrounded with our friends. . . . [p.65]
      Wednesday [June] the 8th. . . [p.73] . . . we started . . . with 56 hand carts & 230 persons. . . . [p.74]
      Sunday 4 Sept. . . . [p.89] . . . [AFTER NEARLY 3 MONTHS ON THE TRAIL, HOBBS DESCRIBES THE ENTRY INTO THE SALT LAKE VALLEY] Started for the Valley. All the horsemen in front. We had not gone far before we were met by 2 bands of music. The first tune I recognized was [-] Mountains high where the clear blue sky arches over the vales of the free & cetera. There was thousands of spectators who seemed pleased to see us. We passed through many beautiful streets went by Brigham's [Young]. There was a large crowd on top of his house looking at us. Brigham among the rest. I was much delighted [p.91] with the beautiful appearance of the city. When we reached the public square the brethren played Home Sweet Home after being greeted by our friends. . . . [p.92]
