William Clayton Journals

August 3, 1847

Location: Salt Lake Valley (the right place), Utah - The end destination for the trek across the plains.

Summary: William Clayton spends day at sulphur springs working on the distance charts.

Journal entry: TUESDAY, 3RD. Morning fine, but cool. Elder Carrington starts for the mountains to look for limestone. During the day I went and bathed at Bullock's bathing place in one of the warm sulphur springs. I found the effects very refreshing and beneficial. Spent most of the day making a table of distances, etc. The day very hot.
