"DEPARTURE OF THE CAMILLUS. -- The Camillus, Captain Day, cleared on the 6th instant, having a company of 228 Saints on board under the presidency of Elder Curtis E. Bolton. Elder John Kelly, late president of the Isle of Man Conference, and a company of Manx Saints, were on board. Elder Levi E. Riter was also on board; he returns to the Valley, with our approbation, because of the injury his system has already experienced from the change of country, &c., which he has undergone since leaving his home in the mountains. This is the last emigration company this season. May God speed all the companies safely to their destination in the valleys of the mountains of Ephraim, that they may swell the numbers of the Saints already there, and be enabled to engage more fully in building up the kingdom of our God."
William Clayton, late pastor of the Sheffield and Lincolnshire Conferences, sailed in the Camillus, on his way to the Valley."

On the sixth of April, 1853, the ship Camillus, Captain Day, cleared from Liverpool, having on board a company of two hundred and twenty-eight Saints, under the presidency of Curtis E. Bolton. The company included Elder John Kelley, who had presided over the Isle of Man conference, and a company of Manx Saints. Elder William Clayton and Levi E. Riter returned to America with this company, which, after a prosperous voyage, arrived in New Orleans, and thence proceeded up the Mississippi River to the outfitting place near Keokyk, where they arrived about the middle of June. This closed the emigration from Great Britain for 1853."
