G. S. L. City, March 24, 1858
To
Elder George Bean and that part of
the Company for the Desert who are
encamped at or near Summit;
Dear Brethren:-- Owing to the state of the weather and the condition of the roads, and other plans of which you will soon learn, it is deemed best for you all to return to your several homes and get your families and move them up to where you now are; and let those who may have no families also return and assist those who have families, if any such assistance is necessary.
Your Brother in the Gospel,
Brigham Young
