Exodus and England
After his return to Nauvoo in late summer 1845, Pratt helped create plans for the Mormon exodus from Illinois and participated in the extension of temple rituals to thousands of Latter-day Saints from December 1845-February 1846. He then participated in the slow trek across Iowa during spring 1846. Concerns about loyalty of the large numbers of English Saints to the apostles—sparked by the failure of a joint stock company intended to help the English Mormon poor to emigrate to the United States—led Brigham Young to send Pratt, John Taylor, and Orson Hyde on a mission to England during the fall of 1845 and winter of 1845-1846. After disbanding the joint stock company, Pratt, Taylor, and Hyde preached in England and Scotland before returning to the United States.
