Summary
Contains photocopies of two handwritten and signed letters dated December 17, 1845 and addressed to William L. Marcy, Secretary of War for the United States. The two items are identical in content, but one appears to be a rough draft of the other. Young petitions the federal government for funds to aid in the westward migration of Mormons from Nauvoo, Illinois, with Vancouver Island as a possible destination. Young requests money to build block houses and stockades on the Oregon Trail and also asks for the establishment of a mail route from Nauvoo to Oregon
