ARRIVALS--We are in receipt of mails from America, with letters from Elders Taylor, Shearman, Reynolds and Barfoot. Brother Reynolds arrived in New York per steamship "Persia," on the 31st ultimo, in good health and spirits.
. . . Our readers will also be pleased to learn form the letter published in this week's "Star," of the safe arrival of the emigrant ship Belle Wood. Brother Shearman, in writing, expresses himself to the effect, that taking into consideration the usual inconveniences of a sea voyage, the passage (31 days) was very pleasant. The provisions furnished, with the exception of the peas, were first class, and had given great satisfaction. The extras and comforts provided by the church were abundant in quantity, excellent in quality, and gratefully appreciated by the Saints, who also speak highly of the untiring exertions of Brother Shearman and his counselors on their behalf. Elder Thomas Taylor was well, but busy arranging for the departure of the Saints to Wyoming, and anxiously awaiting the arrival of the "B.S. Kimball" with the Scandinavian emigrants. [p.397]
