Hosea Stout Journals

February 28, 1848

Summary: Brethren Phippin hired to move wagon.

Journal entry: Mond Feb 28th 1848. Around as usual today. Went over to the river to see a wagon, but finally hired Brethren Phippin for 15 dollars to move it west while planning to send it back in the fall. Eighteen guns were danced out today. It goes well.
