Title Footsteps to Zion
Description crowded tomb. Such was the condition when word was received that help was on the way. President Young, learning of our condition, sent an advance guard of two young men, Joseph Young and Stephen Taylor More welcome messengers never came from the courts of glory. Soon help came with food and clothing [Joseph Young knew the emigrants, some he had converted What he saw made him weep, for there were nearly two or three hundred who desperately needed help and only two of them. These noble young men remained with the Saints, helping them cross icy rivers and plod through deep snow [A council was held to discuss whether to winter at nearby Devil's Gate, but the possibility of supplying a small city of suffering persons during the winter months was formidable, so they moved on, buoyed up with a desire to meet the other rescue parties. [The Hodgett Wagon train that accompanied the Martin Company was also snowbound several miles back on the trail Their suffering was somewhat less because they had some provisions and shelter] We were still 500 miles from Salt Lake in the dead of winter- It seemed those who remained had received a new lease on life, for one fourth of the company had passed away during the journey. After arriving in Salt Lake City, which was November 30, 1856, we were met by William Clyde, with an ox team, and taken to Springville, staying one night with the bishop of American Fork and receiving great kindness Next day we arrived in Springville, and how kind those people were to us 62
