Referring to the Mormon Battalion, the following from Sergeant Major James Ferguson: While we were marching down this river, a scene occurred which, while it afforded amusement to some and suffering to others, manifested the kind watch-care of our Heavenly Father. Our beeves had dwindled down to a few sickly skeletons. Our camp was threatened with scurvy, may attacked with diarrhea, and there seemed no hope for us. Surprised, and some of them wounded by our hunters, a heard of wild cattle made their appearance on all sides of us. Some, more furious than the rest, made a dash at our train. One pitched a poor fellow into the air, severely wounding him. Another tossed a mule on its horns and tore his entrails; while another lifted a wagon out of its track. Now we had fresh meat.
