August 28, 1852 to January 1, 1856. Allred receives a mission call to Hawaii with his brother, Reddin. He travels from Salt Lake to Los Angeles, noting the distance traveled, terrain, illness, Indians, and provisions. He sails from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Allred visits family on Sherman Island, and collects for the missionaries from the gold miners there. Having sufficient funds, he crosses the Pacific, mentioning the weather, seasickness, and writing a poem for his daughter, who has died. Allred arrives in Honolulu, where he learns the language and customs, and is assigned an area. Two years later, he leaves Hawaii and sails home. Arriving in San Francisco, he stops to improve his health. He goes to Mormon Island, finds his brother and the two head home. Allred returns by the same route he took to California, stopping in San Bernardino to tend to Charles Rich's ill family. Returning home, he writes about his family's status, paying debts, and securing grain. October 6, 1856 to October 24, 1856. Allred answers the call to assist the Willie and Martin handcart companies. He records the organization of the relief teams, his travel to meet them, and the dire status of handcart pioneers when he reaches them. This last entry is incomplete. February 1, 1899 to November 1, 1903. Allred describes his life in Chester, Utah as a polygamist in the post-Manifesto period. He splits his time between his two families, who live in neighboring towns. He frequently attends funerals, church services, and applies for a pension for his service in the Black Hawk War. His adult son falls in a well, fracturing his skull and nearly losing his scalp. His subsequent fragile health is a major source of concern for Allred, compounded by his mother's death. He carries the mail in his son's place, and settles his mother's disputed estate. He faithfully records neighborhood news, local elections, callers, and the marriages of his grandchildren. Allred loses several grandchildren in diphtheria and smallpox epidemics, causing much sorrow. He mourns the death of George Q. Cannon, with whom he served in Hawaii, and notes a decline in his own health. He attends the Mormon Battalion's 55th anniversary reunion, which he greatly enjoys. In the last entries, Allred attends the Manti temple with his wives, while coping with his failing health.
