Wilford Woodruff’s First Missionary Year

“This brings the year 1835 to a close – the first year of my mission, during which time I had traveled three thousand two hundred and forty eight miles, held one hundred and seventy meetings, baptized forty three persons, assisted Elder Parrish to baptize twenty more, confirmed 35, organized 3 branches, ordained two Teachers and one Deacon, procured 30 subscribers for the Messenger and Advocate, 173 signers to the petition to the governor of Missouri, had three mobs rise against me – but was not harmed, wrote eighteen letters, received ten, and finally closed the labors of the year 1835 by eating johnny-cake, butter, and honey at Brother A. O. Smoot’s.
