165 years ago today - Mar 2, 1856

President Young ... reproved the people. He considered the people were not ownly asleep but working wickedness. He considered many of the people were like a company of Men rushing to a precipice on a dark night on horsback whare neither horse nor rider could see any thing but would soon be dashed to peaces. He wanted the Elders to put away their velvet lips & smooth things & preach sermons like pitch forks tines downwards that the people might wake up.

... President Grant ... rained down pitch forks & forked lighting figuratively speaking upon the Gentiles who were working wickedness upon this people & defiling the females. ...

The Indian war Continues. 3 more brethren have been killed. Squash one of the war Chiefs was put in prision & the report is that he cut his own throat. He is dead.
