160 years ago today - Apr 24, 1857

[Hosea Stout]
This morning the First presidency started on their northern tour expecting to visit Salmon river [Indian] mission and be gone some four & six weeks[.] They were accompanied by perhaps 150 persons. [Two missionaries had recently been killed there in an Indian attack.]
