"TWELFTH COMPANY. -- Hope, 270 souls. The ship Hope, Captain Soule, sailed from Liverpool February 5th, 1842, with two hundred and seventy passengers, mostly members of the Church, bound for Nauvoo, via New Orleans. Under date of April 13th, 1842, the following is recorded in the History of Joseph Smith:
'About one hundred and fifty Saints from England, landed in Nauvoo from the steamer Louisa, and about sixty from the steamer Amaranth.'
These were undoubtedly a portion of the emigrants who sailed in the Hope."
