President Cannon:

We take great pleasure in resuming the report of our journey for your information….We will here state that we were met at Chicago by Elder Parley P. Pratt, who left the company with which he sailed from Liverpool, on arriving in the States, to visit his wife’s relations.  He accompanied us to Wyoming….
