Journal Entry

July 23, 1844 ~ Tuesday

23rd Tuesday I took the parting hand with father and
mother with great satisfaction a peculier charm was
thrown around my soul as I left the threshhold of
my fathers house, having the confidence that if I
never see my father in the flesh again I shall meet
him again ^in^ the first resurrection. I had a desire in
my heart that all the ordinances of the fulness
of the gospel might also be administered unto father
and mother Carter that they may sleep in peace
may God grant the request. I rode in company with
Landlord Phelps to the railroad depo in New Briten

place mostly at Mr Tuttles, was with Br Terrill
did not see Br Davis, took steem Boat at 10 oclok
