"The ninth company of this season's emigration sailed from Liverpool per Guion and Co.'s Wisconsin, on Saturday, Sept. 15, 1888. It consisted of 145 persons, bound for the settlements of the Saints. Twenty-four of the number were from the Swiss and German Mission, 7 from Holland, and the others from Great Britain. The company is in charge of Elder William G. Phillips. We wish them a safe and prosperous journey. 'And I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding,' saith the Lord."
MS, 50:39 (Sep. 24, 1888), p.618
