A pleasant morning, found the people in the Tithing office, and around there actively employed distributing provisions to the greatly increased number of hands, and preparing for the departure of many teams, men &c. for the new settlements on the Eastern road viz. "Deer Creek." &c.l The President out a little this morning in IAll the activity related to sending men and teams to DeeI Creek east of South Pass and in the vicinity of present Glenrock, Converse County, \Yyoming, on the Overland Trail was corn nccted with the opening of the Brigham Young Express Com- pany operations (also referred to as the YX Company). Hyrum (Hiram) Kimball had been the successflll bidder rvho gained the governnlent contract for carrying the mails to Utah. His bid was $23,000 compared to it'. 51. F. Magralv's $53,i50. It appears that Krighanl Young, fearing he \\-ould not gain the contract if the bidding lverc done in his name, had Kimball submit the hid. Young shortly thereafter "invited" others to join him in forming the Brigham Young Express Conlpany to carry the nlails, operate stages, and carry freight. Among those invited to join him in the venture was his brother-in-law Feranlou Little \vho was serving as church agent in St. I,orlis-a stopping place for nlany of the imnligrant converts hurlcl for Utah.
