[Minutes of the Apostles]

B Y[:] I would turn out half a dozen boys with lariats & they wo[ul]d. have used up [killed] all the Soldiers. I have told them once [and] for all. Every L D S [is] not to admit any Officer or Soldier into his house' ... We have got to restore the purity of the body in order to receive the Priesthood in its fullness. In Baltimore they kill their children & are mad at us for raising the children. [W]e are at war with the whole of them. [T]hey have done every thing they could to kill us. [T]hey have got to let us alone or they will get into Trouble. ... -I told him [Judge Kinny] death would be the result if he did not let my concerns alone. ...
