[George Q. Cannon]
We were notified that there was danger of the Marshal coming up and taking possession of the books and papers this morning, and we endeavored to exercise vigilance by having the brethren acting as guards keep on the lookout. ...
We intended to have left the office this evening; but there was so much work to be done that we concluded to stay another day, although at some risk. I had an interview with my son Abraham on business this afternoon... He has been very successful in managing the trials up there, and by spending a little money has succeeded in keeping a number of our brethren out of the clutches of our enemies. I felt to congratulate him very much on his own escape, he having been discharged from arrest.
