165 years ago today - Mar 21, 1857

[Wilford Woodruff]

I bought an Indian boy of Brother Willis this morning abot 6 years old. His Indian name was Saroquetes. We call him Nephi. He appears like a smart active good boy. I paid $40 for him. I am in hopes to Educate him & prepare his mind that He may some day be useful in preaching to his tribe of the Piedes.
