". . . A company of emigrating Saints, consisting of 116 souls, and six returning missionaries, sailed from Copenhagen April 24,1890, per steamship 'Cameo' for Hull, England, bound for Utah, under the direction of Elder Adolph Anderson. The names of the other returning elders were as follows: Gearsen S. Bastian, Ole Peterson, Nils Anthon, Elof G. Erickson and Mathias C. Lund. The voyage across the North Sea was successful, though considerable seasickness prevailed on the Saturday, which was stormy. Captain Chambers treated the emigrants with kindness and consideration. The company arrived in Hull, England, on the 27th, in the morning. A small company of emigrating Saints (29 souls) and two returning missionaries (Ludvig Ehrnstrom and Lars P. Nielsen) sailed from Christiania, Norway, Apr. 25, 1890, bound for Utah. After a somewhat stormy voyage across the North Sea this company arrived in Hull on the evening of the 27th, where they joined the larger company of Scandinavian emigrants who left Copenhagen on the 24th. On Monday morning (April 28th) the two emigrant companies traveled by rail to Liverpool, where lodging was secured for them at Hotel Svea. President George Teasdale organized the company with Adolph Anderson as leader and Elders Ludvig Ehrnstrom and Gearsen S. Bastian as his assistants. On Friday evening, May 2nd, the emigrants went on board the steamship 'Wyoming' and sailed from Liverpool the next day, May 3rd. A few hours after leaving the River Mersey, stormy weather set in, causing considerable sickness among the emigrants. After a quick voyage across the Atlantic, the 'Wyoming' arrived in New York May 13th, whence the emigrants continued their journey to Utah. . . . "
