120 years ago today - Jan 5, 1893

[Francis M. Lyman] From the Herald I read this morning that Pres[ident] Harrison. did yesterday issue his proclamation of Amnesty good for all offenses up to November 1, 1890 against the laws against Polygamy, Bigamy and unlawful cohabitation. Those who have sinned since that date or do not accept of this amnesty are to be vigorously prosecuted. That is what we get. I presume we should be thankful for it.
