[Wilford Woodruff]

I spent 4 hours at the Council House with Presidt Taylor J. F. Smith & A Carrington in hearing a Case of seduction & Adultery. A man Committed Adultery with two married women And the Husband of one of the women shot him dead and was tryed by a jury and Cleared And a Brother of the two Husbands of the two women also Committed Adultery with the two women and both of the men who were innocent got a Bill of Divorce from their wives. It was a vary grieveious Affair. They all Confessed their Sins and forgave Each other and were to be Baptized for the remission of their sins.
