I speak of soldiers as well as the rest of us-but here in the city, we buy, x buy nothing-except in the garden of the house where I am, (the owner having reed permission to remain in the city, &by profession a gardener) are vegetables & strawberries. One other man remained, who kept open a room for the strangers to eat in, & he sent out of the city twice a week for meat, & obtained his vegetables from th,i garden' We have hved on what we brought from camp with us-uart of the dav & we take din= at thls roam, to ,. - gether with the other civil officers, who unlike ourselves, could get no houses or rooms-& slept in their travelling vehi- cles-as did Govr Powell & Major McCullough, the Commr. As soon as the army are "settled down" Alfred will go to l'rovo, & see Brigham Young and the other leading men, & send a proclamation to all the settlements that the army has passed through, nothing has been molested, & that all may return to the city in safety. Then stores vwll be remopened & things will partially return to the old routine. On Sunday 27%June-Genl Johnston &staff, & nearly 82
