  • Apr-Jun 1854

Letters from Horace whilst as a young man and convert to Mormonism, emigrated with a friend to America, with the aim of settling in Salt Lake City, Utah, or 'the Valley' as he refers to it, although, according to the memoirs of his travelling companion, William Jex, he died en route at 'Sweet Water' somewhere between Kansas City and Utah. These letters were written at various points of his journey, i.e.: near the West Indies, describing the sea voyage across the Atlantic, with a postscript from New Orleans, having travelled up the Mississippi River, mentioning the sight of hundreds of slaves, '...with their little wooden huts seeming to be happy and their masters living in fine houses...' and the orange groves along the river, from Kansas commenting on his prospects and the temptations in America, and from the same place describing his company's provisions and preparations to cross the [Great] Plains by waggon-train to Salt Lake City. Also included are modern transcripts supplied by the donor and printed extracts from William Jex's autobiography.
