Title Forty-niner in Utah, page 126
Description Exploring Great Salt Lake Stansbury's plan of action included setting up a small depot on the west shore of Antelope Island for provisions to supply the party designated to survey the west side of the lake, establishing a herd ground for his mules and beef cattle on the island, and then making a thorough reconnaissance of the lake by water during which he would supervise the erection of triangulation stations at prominent points around the lake. Later, he could direct his party "to cover the whole surface with a series of triangles, which would verify the work. "29 For the next several days, stations were erected on Antelope and Fremont islands until April 9 when Stansbury sent Carrington to the city to get the rest of the provisions and to fetch two "hands" and John Hudson. Hudson's journal picks up the narrative on April 11 when he traveled to Antelope Island with his new foreman Albert Carrington.30 29 Stansbury, Report, 156. p. 3o Carrington, Journal, 5-11 April, pp. 1, 2. 126
