[William Clayton]
Supper with Sarah. She washed my feet. She had a dream last night something like this. She thought a man brought a young man before her and said he was to be her companion. Wh[ich] I had told her was not true &c. about eternity and he said we were of different dispositions. She was troubled and thought in her own mind she would not be in a hurry &c. [five lines crossed out]. She gave me a new pair of slender shoes.

[Joseph Smith would later encourage Clayton to plurally marry Crooks]
