[John Henry Smith]
Elder A. W. Ivins, Prest. S. O. Bennion and Myself went to Gallatin...

We visited the spot where Prophet Jos. Smith said Adam built an Altar. The people say here it was here Adam was buried. It is a limestone country with hill and valley, the Grande River runnning through the County. It well may be called the Garden of Eden. We offered prayers in the spot that indicated where the Altar stood.
