Mormon hymn books, musical scores, newspaper clippings, a short autobiography, a biography, and letters. Also included is a photostat copy of a handwritten list of passangers on the William Tapscott in 1859. The Mormons on the ship later formed the George Rowley handcart company which emigrated to Utah in 1859. Also included is a diary by an unnamed person describing the journey to Utah with the Rowley company. Since Beesley was known to be a member of the company, the diary is probably his. Beesley settled first in Tooele and later in Salt Lake City, Utah.
