[William Clayton Journal] ... M[argaret] says D[iantha] Farr said to day she believed M[argaret] and I was vexed at her and she almost felt disposed almost to go to every house in the city and tell all she knew [about plural marriage] and then come home and kill herself. I felt my heart ac[h]e to night when we lay down being down stairs and M[argaret] up. My soul loves M[argaret] and my desire is to see her happy and comfortable. Oh may the Lord bless her.
