[Brigham Young Jr.]
Loafed around the office for want of something better to do. Have read Bro[ther] [Apostle] M.[oses] Thatcher's speech on the Convention and disapp[r]ove of it, he is out of order-- abusive, he is not united with his quorum. Learn that certain are employing spotters to catch leading men on Unlawful Cohab. The cloven foot is coming out gain the Repub[lican], organ is firing big gums at Church authorities. The "Lib" Party begins to wriggle & spit venom.
