[President Wilford Woodruff]
21 I went to the Office. Samuel Cates from Ogden Called upon me And asked me to Fill a Carr with 20,000 lbs of flour to take to the starving people of Nebraskia. Cash Valley furnished 6,500 lbs. I ordered 1 br[ought?] Bishop Preston 14,000 lbs. to fill the Cars at Richmond making 20,500 lbs which we donate as a Church for that suffering People. I received a Letter from Asahel.
