Brigham Young Journals

July 18, 1847

Summary: Planning ahead for planting crops.

Journal entry: Sunday. Spent the day in prayer for the recovery of the sick and partook of the Sacrament.

Afternoon, I proposed that the Camp proceed to make their way over the mountains, and when a suitable location was found, plant potatoes and corn. The proposition was approved.

Elders Kimball, Woodruff, Benson and a few others concluded to remain with me.
