160 years ago today - Jun 15, 1860

Albert Carrington read a letter from Sydney Rigdon to the President. The President remarked, Sydney is crazy'- The President remarked at Haun's Mill about 100 men ravished a young woman after tying her to a bench. They were part of a mob headed by Governor Boggs that was worse than whipping Henifer. I also Consider, observed the President, that the Troops are a mob of the United States, before our persecutions were from single states. -- Salt Lake City
