165 years ago today - May 17, 1847

[Brigham Young Sermon] President Young reproved sharply the hunters for killing more game than was necessary, for detaining the camp, and because of their indifference in helping to pick out the road. He said there were but two men who had manifested any interest in helping to get the pioneers along. Afterward the horsemen went forward to pick out the road instead of hunting, and I did not hear a gun fired during the day. [Platte River - Wilford Woodruff Journal; WW 285-286]
