Title Forty-niner in Utah, Bibliography page 210
Description Bibliography Stout, 18~1861 was of particular importance. For descriptions of the settle- ments at Fort Utah (Provo) and Manti, various local histories and, again, some journals gave good information. With reference to Hudson's membership in the Mormon church, the L.D.S. Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City was, of course, the place to go. The young artist's account of his participation as a member of the Stansbury expedition's exploration and survey of Great Salt Lake is beautifully supple- mented by the very interesting and extended journals kept by Captain Howard Stansbury and Lieutenant John W. Gunnison and by the even more pithy and succinct diary of Albert Carrington. These journals, clothed in the leather- bound covers befitting a United States Topographical Engineer's "scientific expe- dition," presently are held in the United States National Archives and someday should be edited and published as one of the great contributions to western travel and exploration. The above brief description of the various sources examined in the prepara- tion of the annotated notes to John Hudson's letters and journal naturally reflect the perceptions and impressions of the editor, and the selection is, therefore, not at all comprehensive or maybe even very discriminating. The following list of works will provide the necessary bibliographic information on the materials cited. Published Material Ambler, Charles Henry. A History of Transportation in the Ohio Valley.
