In the Spring of 1860 I was called to go & help Bro. Cha[rle]s Rich & Son Joseph & Bro. Amasa Lyman & Son F.M. on their mission to england & I accommpanied them as far as Omaha. On my return I brought a Threshing machine also some poor families who were not able to help themselves. Among the passengers were Marg[a]ret Emma Jones to whom I was united Oct 9th 1860.
