Title Forty-niner in Utah, acknowledgements xvii
Description Acknowledgments his book would not have been possible except for the generosity and concern of Mr. C. A. Norris of Brookend House, Welland, Malvern, Worcester- shire, England. Recognizing that the letters and sketches of John Hudson which had been in possession of the Hudson family for almost 130 years rightly belonged in Utah, Mr. Norris made them available to Marriott Library of the University of Utah. We hope that he will approve of this book about one of his adventurous ancestors. To the staff of the Special Collections Department of Marriott Library, I am grateful for granting me a carrel and study space while research and writing were underway, and I especially wish to thank the following librarians for their ever-helpful service in locating manuscripts, in duplicating materials, and in general making my scholarly pursuits pleasant and profitable: Susannah Breaden, Della Dye, Marlene Lewis, Cynthia Morgan, and Ruth Yeaman. The final manuscript received the careful scrutiny of Margery W. Ward, a superb editor, and the scholarly judgment of Dr. Everett L. Cooley, head of Special Collections and professor of history at the University. My thanks to both. Dr. Cooley was responsible for obtaining the Hudson materials and for supervising the publication of the book. For his interest, encouragement, and advice, I am particularly appreciative. Finally, I should like to thank LaVon West for typing the manuscript, the most recent of several which, over the years, she has converted from a degenerate Palmer script into neat type.
