[Apostle Wilford Woodruff]
The remainder of Zions Camp had a meeting for the first time since their travels to Mo. in 1834, when they went up to redeem Zion. We met in the Social Hall being over fifty of the original 205. It was the most interesting Party I ever attended. ... . President Young in his speech said that if that Company behaved vary well they should be the first Company Chosen to go back to Jackson County. We had a vary interesting time.
