[Wilford Woodruff]

... in addition to some bread & Cheese & a pint of beer we made out a supper & went to bed, & I dreamed of falling among thieves & robbers, who tried to rob us under pretence that we had done sumthing wrong in London some years since. I told them we never had been in London untill within few months that we were Americans & had a family there, & we had come to preach the gospel & we would preach to them, if they would open their doors & after bothering awhile with them I awoke, & found it to be the first Christmas Eve I ever Spent in London.
