The following from the journal of Robert Warne Reeve Jr.:   In Feby 1853 we started from Liverpool on the ship International for Zion and had a good time except one very heavy storm lasting 3 days. [On board] we celebrated the laying of the Corner Stones of the Salt Lake Temple on April 6, 1853, and landed in New Orleans before I was 15 years of age.
