[William Clayton Journal] ... This A.M. Joseph told me that since E[mma] came back from St. Louis she had resisted the P[riesthood] [[IE polygamy]] in toto and he had to tell her he would relinquish all for her sake. She said she would [have] given him E[liza] and E[mily] P[artridge], but he knew if he took them she would pitch on him and obtain a divorce and leave him. He however told me he should not relinquish anything. O God deliver thy servant from iniquity and bondage.
