We Called upon the Presidet [Brigham Young]. We were informed that the Court was trying to get him to appear as a witness on the morrow. It was expected that there was a plan laid to kill him But God will ward off the Blow. ...
I spent the evening with the President & the Committee on the Deseret Alphabet. We laboured till near 11 oclok on the word Rule. The brethren Could not agree upon the sound of it. Most of the Company wanted it <rool> others want it <riool> [in Deseret].
