WY Wedn[e]sday I Attended to the usual buisness of the day Finished pre- pareing the mail matter, wrote to Groesbeck"' to locate an Y X Station out from Independance that the breth- eren might [have] nothing further to do with that place, than to go in with the mails & Bring return do [ditto]. Had conversation with Wm Hickman concerning his coming home so quick (7 days from Laramie) wrote to H. S Eldridge to not run in debt; as my policy in money matters is, never to run into debt, but extend my buisness operations only so far, as my means in Hand, will enable me to Settle at the Shortest notice. ,`"Nicholas Groesbcck, an early convert to Mormonism, migrated to Utah in 1847 and was sent to Indeprndence ( 1857) as the agent for the Brigham Young Express Company. \Vhile there he purchased goods (1,000 pound5 of powder) to aid in the Utah War, but Ma? not permitted to bting his muchandix through the lines of United States troops \vho \verc en louts to Utah.
