(Zion's Camp) A. S. Gilbert dies from the cholera. Although a faithful Saint, Gilbert lacked self-confidence concerning his public-speaking abilities, and had recently said that he would "rather die than go forth to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles."

[Conkling, Christopher J., Joseph Smith Chronology]
