[President Wilford Woodruff Journal]
I met with Col Isaac Trumbo for 2 Hours. He give me an account of the Great Labor He and Gen Clarkson had in getting the Utah Bill Through Congress & to get it Signed by the President. <It cost the [-] three hundred and thirty thousand dollars to get that bill passed.> It has Been a great Labor to get Utah admitted into the Union.

... I am worked altogether to hard. I dont sleep Nights and am weary by day. As Trustee in trust and the Presidency of the Church we have taken such a load upon us it is Difficult to Carry it.
