175 years ago today - Jan 19, 1847

President Heber C Kimball organized His family company this night At the Council House consisting of about 200 persons.

I Wilford Woodruff organized my family company this night At my own House consisting of 40 Men mostly Head men of families. Those that Joined me entered in a covenant with uplifted Hands to Heaven to keep all the commandments & Statutes of the Lord our God And to sustain me in my office...

I went to bed and fell asleep And dreamed {that I was <[-] with child and> ready to <be delivered> which was a singular dream.
