[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal]
I recieved the following in the Boston Times: We have advices by Express from Salt Lake [of?] the 15th April. New and extraordinary discoveries of Gold have been made in the Mountains near the Salt Lake. The people in the valley were Anxious for A Territorial Government & were about to send Mr Bern-hisel to congress for that purpose. The saints were prospering at the salt Lake.
