160 years ago today - May 31, 1853

[Hosea Stout Diary] Tuesday 31 May 1853. This mornings No of the "Hongkong register" has a long article showing the necessity of having the "Mormonites" indicted for Blasphemy, and set to "picking oakum and kept on bread and water" but the Editor replies that his prescriptions "savours too much of the dark ages & days of thumbkings" and recommends for the people to let us alone. I confess I admire the Editors judgement. When the Devil begins to rage and howl, it surely betokens that the Lord has a work to do.
