[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 19th The company was to start at 4 oclock to go to Nephi to Breakfast. Some of the waggons started out at that hour. T Bullock J C Wright myself & others started out at 4 oclock to walk thinking that our waggons would soon be along but they did not start till 2 hours afterwards. We walked 7 mils and it was so exceding Cold in the snow & on So high an altitude that we thought we should freeze. So we stoped in a patch of Greeseweed & struck a fire & staid by it 2 Hours before the waggons came up. Several frooze their feet & fingers.

When we arived at Nephi we were thoroughly Chilled through. We got warm took dinner & rode to Pason & spent the night [with] Brother Hancock Bishop. We rode 45 miles to day. Lorenzo Snow & myself J. M. Grant & J. C. Little & Ladies spent the night at Brother Israel Calkins. He charged us all 50 cts per meal & 25 for lodging. (3)

-Went to Seventies meeting, and voted to cut off Geo. P. Stiles for adultery. Elder Lorenzo Snow said:-- the spirit of God influences a man to kick a__es: and hew down the wicked as Samuel did Agag and to kick guts out, as Peter did the bowels of Judas, and the time will soon come that we must purify Israel in the same way.
