Drove over 1 hour 20 min. a distance of about 14 or 15 miles.44 My Sheep, in care of Bro Lorenzo, are thriving. Two only have died out of about 400 head since March last. it appears to be a good place for them, and they must be well taken care of, as they look fat & fine got home at yz past 3 P.M. visited office on return and Signed a" number of circulars, to the various bishops to Send in all thier tithing Sheep as we want them to opperate with here. Bro James Brown called, for council relative to going back to States to try and get his father mother & family to gather.

My daughter Luna Caroline has been quite Ill, I called on [her] She is better.4" 44Lorenzo Dow Young was the youngest brother of Brigham. He came to Utah in the`filst party of 1847, being one of thler men who brought wites in the pioneer band. He was the first to move out of the fort the first year in the Valley, and built a log cabin where the Beehive Ilouse now stand?. Lolenlo Young was a farmer and stock raiser. In 1849 he brought five hundred sheep to Utah to stock his ranch west of the Jordan. Lolcnzo Dow Young, "Early Experiences," holograph, Bancloft Library. Whitney, History of c'tah, 4:53-55 uayq his ranch was opposite Willow Creek (Draper) which Lvould place him in the Wert Mountain district.
