Title Andrew
Description York to Florence, Nebraska, 2000 miles; thence we travelled by ox-drawn wagons to Utah, WOO miles over a desolate and uninhabited desert. At that time, all our merchandise had to be freighted over this desert, and consequently goods were very costly-in contrast to the present cheap prices; as the railroad crosses right through the country to California, with a spur northward and one southward, and it has been decided to extend it throughout this Territory. Salt Lake City is the capital. It derives its name from the salt lake situated a little way from the town. The water in it is so sally that from the edge of the lake one can fetch salt just as we can fetch sand in Denmark. In the proximity of the town, there is a hot spring... there are really several; the water comes hot out of the mountain. A bath house has been built there and the omnibus runs there with people several times a day. There are also similar springs near here. Here in Utah, the mountains are so high that the snow may be found lying on them from one year to another although it is warmer here than it is in Denmark. On some parts of these mountains there are forests, while in some places in them there is coal, iron, lead, copper, gold and silver. In these various places there are several thousands of people laboring to bring forth these various materials and to purify them. 89
