Worked on the school house. Charles went to the City with tithing and worked making washboards. Commenced working on my chamber and Saturday 17, nailed on the lath.
Went to meeting and had some good teachings. I spoke of some influences that were going the rounds, reproving the same and those that were responsible. Those that were possessed with the devil manifested their spirit and were reproved by the Bishop and there was a plain manifestation of the powers.
Worked at the house. Made a brake for breaking flax, made window sash and frame, went for wood and when I came home there was Brother E. T. Benson at my house. Sunday, went to meeting twice and Brother Benson preached to us. [And the next week was entirely spent hauling straw to Camp Floyd.]

Sunday, January 1, 1860
(New Year) I started to the City with Brother Henry Evans. Went to the office and saw Brother Calder, President Young’s clerk about having a sister sealed to me. He told me to come next day at 11:00 A.M. After supper I went to see Sister Alice Hanson, but not finding her, I went to the 16th ward meeting and had the privilege of speaking. The Lord blessed me. After meeting I learned where sister Alice was and went to the house and saw her. I made arrangements with her to go with me to the President’s the next day.
I arose and fixed myself, settled for a wagon that I had purchased and at 11:00 A.M. got to the President’s office and had our names registered on the Church Book, and at 12:00 noon was called into the President’s Room and there the sacred ordinance of sealing was performed by President Young. He blessed me. At 12:30 P.M. I started home and arrived at fifteen minutes before 7:00 P.M. Found all well.
