. . . On the twenty-eighth of the month we sailed out on board the George Washington, a sailing vessel, there being in the company 816 Saints aboard besides the ship's crew.
On our voyage we experienced some storms, but all things considered we had a pleasant one. We landed in Boston twenty-one days after leaving Liverpool, which was considered to be remarkably good time for a sailing vessel. We then traveled from Boston to Iowa City, in the state of Iowa, by railroad, remaining there three weeks. The reason for our having to wait so long was on account of our handcarts not being ready for us on our arrival. . . . [p.203]
