Title Ezra Clark, page 027
Description EZRA THOMPSON CLARK their congested condition and poverty with opportunities in America. No doubt that is one of the reasons he aided so many who later came to Utah. In 1858 there were 28 con- ferences, 250 branches, with a total of 17,902 members of the L.D.S. Church in the British mission. Seventy-five con- verts came to Zion through the financial aid of Ezra Clark. Bancroft said, "Those who have visited any of the great manufacturing towns of Lancashire, where in winter, men, women and children may be seen hastening from their ill-drained hovels through the snow and slush of the dark streets to the cotton-mill, returning exhausted with toil to their supper of bread and tea, will not wonder that these helpless human beings were glad to exchange their hard lot for the plenty of the Promised Land." In 1861 a great number of teams were sent to the Mis- souri River to help the poor Saints across the plains. One company, which left Utah to give assistance, consisted of 203 men, 2,880 oxen, and 143,315 pounds of flour. Among the teams was a yoke of black oxen belonging to Ezra Clark. They were exceptionally good travelers and known by many on the road. Seven times these faithful animals crossed the plains. There was much conflict between the Church authorities and the civil officers in the early days of Utah. Brigham Young's wisdom and understanding of his people stands out in contrast to the unscrupulous politicians who were sent to Utah from Washington to hold offices. Many un- truths about civic affairs were circulated and the federal government was ignorant of the true conditions. An army of 2,500 soldiers was sent to Utah in 1857 with a new governor for the territory and there occurred what is known as the Utah War.
