175 years ago today - Jul 19, 1843

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff]
19 I took canal packet in company with Elder B Young. Rode to Lockland. Fare 50 cts each $1.00. Stoped & spent the night (upon a pinch) with Mr David Martin. He had been baptized into the Church but was fearful & unbelieveing. We had the privilege however of spending the night with him & lying upon a patent Bedstead upon which it is said that neither a Bedbug or flea will stay on it. But the reason why yet remains a secret. He did not ask us our names untill we left next morning. Distance 10 m.
