Description Sat 6 Prest Young in the office part of the day, dined or supped at GlobeI with Prest Kimball & Bp Hunter. A fine genial fall of rain this afternoon. Sund. 7. Mild weather, Meeting convened in Bowery [on Temple Block] as usual, Grateful atknowledgements of the good- ness of our heavenly Father in sending us fertilizing showers. Prest Y. spoke both forenoon & afternoon & Limhi. Diaries of sonre of the participants also tell of the illnesses and discomforts encountered. For example, the Prcdat ick Kesler Diary, No. 1, for the month of June 1857 makes frequent mention of his health. 14The Globe was one of the few and mavlx the only public eating place in Salt Lake at this time. There are several tefer- ences to it in contemporary sources. The operator and part otvnrr was David Candland. The Glohc was located on Main Street in /5 Salt Lake a few doors south of the Temple Block. It is referted to as an "Ice Cream Saloon," "The Glohc Bakery," and an "eating saloon." David Candland opened the Globe Saloon in August 1856 apparently under some kind of financial arrangement \lith Brigham Young and W. C. Staines. It had a history of opening and closing to meet not only the nrcds of the commtmity but in answer to Brigham Young'\ desires. It closed finally, June 1860. See David Candland Diary, 1819-1902, pp. 18-50, L. D. S. Archives. Jesse Gove, an officer in Albert Sidney Johnston's army in 1858, noted that the peace commissioners, Ben McCulloch and Lazarus Powell, while not being able to obtain rooms at DI. Candland's "eating saloon," did get "very good board" even though Mr. Candland had to send to Provo to get many of his supplies due to the "Move South" by the Salt Lake inhabitants with the approach of United States troops in the spring of 1858. In Gove's words, "We feast on green peas and strawberries with snow all the time in sight," despite his having to send to Provo for many items. Jesse A. Gove, The Utah Expedition, 1857-1858.
