From "Journals and Reminiscences" by Alexander Street (Son of Thomas Street - Age 19)

. . . I was very glad when my parents sold out and started for Zion. We sailed from Liverpool In the good ship Minnesota.'the first steamship that brought a load of Saints across., (THE FIRST STEAMSHIP WHICH TOOK A COMPANY OF SAINTS ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WAS NOT THE MINNESOTA (1868) BUT RATHER THE "MANHATTAN" (1867). J We set sail the latter part of June 1868, and got to New York the early part of July, being 11 days and 1/4 on the way. I remember we celebrated the 4th of July on the Sea, After landing. it was very hot and a number of our company died with sun stroke. The Saints were much disliked in those days, hut we were wiling to put up with their dislikes in coining through the States. They put some of us [p. 9] in box cars, and sortie in cattle cars. Ai the time we fell quite indignant hut those in the cattle cars were much blessed for what breeze there was that got in, which was very desirable. 1 remember at one place in the States thai the people tried to influence my father to not go to Utah. They told him that if he did that Brigham Young would take mother away from him. And if he did not want to stay In Utah, he could not get away. For ifhe did attempt to the Danlties would kill him. How much different wefoundit, everybody had the privilege of to go and come with as much freedom as any other place on earth.

Brigham Young Instead of being a bad man, was a good man.. Never did he teach anything but good. He taught good men and women to be better men and women.... [p. 10]

"THE MINNESOTA, - The steamship Minnesota, with a company of Saints numbering 534 persons, left this port for New York on Tuesday, June 30th. Previous to her departure, a meeting was held en the poop deck, when the Saints were addressed by President F. [Franklin] D. Richards, upon the course which they should pursue on their voyage. He exhorted them to faithfulness, unity, order, and brotherly love, and promised them, on condition of observing these things, a safe.and swift passage- across the sea Elder C. [Charles] W. Penrose engaged in prayer, and dedicated the ship and the company to the care and protection of Almighty God. Several hymns were sung, and much good feeling was displayed. In addition to the presiding officers of the company, the following named; returning missionaries took passage on the Minnesota - Eiders Isaac A. Kimball, Jonathan Steggetl, George Hunter, M i a n S, Grant, and Almon Robison. The Minnesota steamed away to sea ^ 4 a.m.,. amid the cheers and rejoicings of the Saints on board. God speed her on her way.*
