"EMIGRATION. . . . The ship Henry Ware, also sailed the fore part of this month, having on board 225 Saints, under the presidency of Robert Martin and his counselors.
The total number of Saints (including children) in these three ships, is 770. As they sailed out of the docks at Liverpool, they unitedly joined in the songs of Zion, while large crowds assembled to hear the joyful strains as they flowed from hearts that were animated with the brightest of hopes.
Oh! How cheering to the poor Saints, who have so long been borne down with poverty and wretchedness, to escape from old Babylon, and wend their way to a land of peace and plenty, to join with a nation of Saints, governed by the righteous laws of heaven. . . ."
MS, 11:4 (Feb. 15, 1849), p.56
"THIRTY-NINTH COMPANY. -- Henry Ware, 225 Saints. The ship Henry Ware sailed from Liverpool for New Orleans with two hundred and twenty-five Saints on board, February
7th, 1849, under the presidency of Robert Martin and his counselors. As the vessel sailed out of the docks of Liverpool the Saints on board 'unitedly joined in the songs of Zion, while large crowds assembled to hear the joyful strains as they flowed from the hearts that were animated with the brightest hopes.' The Saints sailing on the vessels previously departing, passed out singing in a similar manner.
After a voyage of eight weeks and three days, the company arrived in New Orleans, Sunday morning, April 8th. The emigrants had enjoyed good health on the voyage, except a little sea sickness. The weather was very good most of the time.
At New Orleans Brother Lucius N. Scovil directed the clearing of the luggage at the custom house, and the removal of the same to the steamer Grand Turk, on board of which the company sailed for St. Louis in the evening of April 11th. (Millennial Star, Volume XI, pages 57 and 155.)"
