[Wilford Woodruff]
We received an express this morning from the Army in the Mountains saying that our enemies were marching strongly towards us. They tryed to stampede the Animals of the Army but found them all chained by the feet so they Could not run. A small Company also tried to stampede some oxen & they failed in [it].
