I spent a short time at Hyrum Groesbeck in the evening. His wife is very sick. Josephine stoped over night there.
Mark Austin of Sugar City, Idaho gave me and my son George Albert one hundred dollars each. (1)

[Joseph Smith Diary] 27th Sunday morning, 27th At the us[u]al hour attended meeting at the School house. President Cowdery delivered a verry able and interesting discourse. In the after part of the day Br[other] Hyrum Smith and Bishop Partri[d]ge delivered each a short and /interesting/ lecture, after which the Sacrament of the Lord's supper /was administered/ and dismissed our meeting.
Those Gentlemen that proposed to have an interview with me on this morning did not come and I conclude they were trifling characters. (3)
