June 14, 1847
Location: Elkhorn River Crossing - 986 miles left, Nebraska - (nine rods wide, three feet deep) - 27 miles from Winter Quarters. Seven miles south and further west, over the Elkhorn River, members of the first company camped here April 11, 1847.
Summary: Monday - Crossing the Elk Horn River.
Journal entry: Cross'd the river which is a muddy swift running stream--on a raft in the afternoon--before which sis. Smith Thom & Sess. came to our carriage--we had an interesting time--sis. P. & sis. T. spoke in tongues & many interesting things were said.
After crossing I went to sis. Sess. tent spoke to Lucina & Mary [Sessions] about their relationship & was made to rejoice in hearing them speak in the gift of tongues.
