Pres. Brigham Young stated that the Semi-annual Conference was now open, and that the first business was to forthwith start assistance to those now on the plains [Willie & Martin companies]. Called upon those who were willing to go, or send teams, to come to the stand and report; saying that if there were not enough teams; teamsters etc., volunteered, he would close the conference, and, with Br. Kimball, start back to help those companies. [Pres. Kimball remarked, It is moved and seconded that Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball and Jedediah M. Grant go back to help the P.E. Fund Emigrants. Unanimously negative] Pres. B. Young spoke upon the necessity of a reformation among the Saints. -- SLC Bowery
