[Apostle John W. Taylor speaking:] I want to tell that I have not broken any law. The [Wilford Woodruff] manifesto was issued to pacify the U.S. Government and for no other purpose. But thank God the U.S. have no jurisdiction outside of their boundary lines. I have taken my families away from them so that I will break no law of any kind.
