[Joseph Smith] Alexander Doniphan writes to Major General Atchison stating that he and his 200 men marched to Far West, received the confiscated weapons and the three prisoners from the Saints, and, to keep the peace, camped between the Saints' forces led by Lyman Wight and the mob forces led by a Dr. Austin of Carroll County.
