135 years ago today - Mar 21, 1884

[Wilford Woodruff]
The salt Lake Tribune /Editors/ Forged a sermon which they Published on Sunday Morning March 16/84 and Published it as a verbatim report of a Discourse delivered at Juab School House on Sunday March 9, 1884 by Bishop West. There was no meeting held on that day there at all and there was no Bishop West in the Church, and No bishop by any name there. It was the most infamous forgery Concocted Either by Man or Devils all got up by the Editor of the Tribune to injure the Saints and Govornor Eli H Murray took a Bundle of them to washington to Circulate among the Members of Congress to help destroy the Saints. The Deseret News of March 19 has the whole account in it and Comments upon it and the Tribune of the 20 Came out and recalled it. Said they were imposed upon, and Men Carrying on such a game as that ought & will be damed.
