175 years ago today - Friday, Jan 22, 1847.

... Dr. [Willard Richards] immediately arose and repaired to Elder Benson's where he found Presidents B[righam] Young, H[eber] C. Kimball, O[rson] Pratt, Joseph Young, and E[zra] T. Benson, who soon invited them to his table well furnished with nice pork, fat beef, roast turkey, and apple pie. Dr. Richards carved the turkey and Mrs. Benson poured the tea and coffee. After supper, the brethren retired and had conversation concerning the accounts of the Battalion. The brethren retired soon after sunset.
