The Salt Lake Valley pioneers are visited by two Ute Indians. They give the Indians "a rifle and a musket" in exchange for two ponies. Later, in the afternoon, "two more Indians came in to trade. Some of the brethren are making unwise trades giving 20 charges of powder and balls for a buck skin, while the usual price is three charges."
