170 years ago today - Sep 18, 1841, Friday

[William Clayton Writings] On the 18th Richard Jenkinson died appearantly suffering much. About this time we suffered severly on account of having no fire in the house. The chimney was blown down in March and was not built up again untill George A. Smith one of the twelve and Brother Montague came on the 29th with a load of wood and afterwards built up the chimney for which we felt thankful.
