[Wilford Woodruff]
In the afternoon President H. C Kimball J M. Grant F D. Richards & Z Pulsipher occupied the time. President Kimball & Grant flung the Arrows of God into the Hearts of the Transgressor. The spirit & power of God was upon them.

I attended the Council prayer Circle. ...

President B. Young said to J. C. Little I wish you would see Hosea Stout & see if their is any Law whareby I can Handle Judge Drummand for He has trampelled over all Law of this Territory walked over the Legislature of this Territory & all their Enactments & if their is any Law that I can get hold of I want to send for him & Judg him up. He has said there was no Marriage in this Territory that was Legal whether a man had one wife or more ...

President Young said I have got a Letter from Elder Hyde. He officiated as Clerk in [non-Mormon] Drummonds Court & wrote things there day after Day against God our religion & the people for a few dimes. He ought to be Cut off from the Quorum of the Twelve & the Church. He is no more fit to stand at the Head of the Quorum of the Twelve than a dog. His soul is entirely occupied with a few dimes & it is much more in his eyes than God Heaven & Eternal Life. He is a stink in my norstrels.
