170 years ago today - Aug 27, 1847
In England Henry Jacobs's missionary companion, Oliver B. Huntington receives a letter informing the two missionaries that Huntington's sister "Zina [Diantha Huntington Jacobs Smith Young, Jacobs's legal wife, plural widow of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young's plural wife] had gone to Salt Lake City to live with President Young's family". Oliver dashes off a letter to Zina, complaining that "Henry is here and herd the letter. He says all is right, he don't care. He stands alone as yet. I have had almost as much trial about you as he has. I have had to hear, feel and suffer everything he has-If you only knew my troubles you'd pitty me."
