John Steele Tells His Story:
"On September 2nd we traveled very fast for 16 miles and came up with a company of Missouri cavalry volunteers. Here water was scarce. Here in this desert we were ordered up at 4 o'clock in the morning with the promise we would eat breakfast soon, but we made 30 miles first. My mess consisted of myself, Levi Savage, Ezra Fatoute and Howard Thomas, also my wife and little daughter Mary.
"We soon went on through the great forest of cedar wood and came to San Miguel where ladies were on top of the house, and when they saw that I had women in my wagon they hastened down and sent their old father to invite us in. Then when the women got out of the wagon there was such a hugging as I had never seen before, as that was their manner of saluting. We didn't stay there long as I discovered skulking around the corrals a great number of men, and as my team was the last and I was alone, I must hasten on. It was well I did as I was told they were planning to steal my little girl ((Mary). After much travel we landed at Santa Fe October 12, 1846, where 250 brethren got there the day before us. The flag was flying, all went merry as a marriage bee....
