[Wilford Woodruff]

"Presidet Kimball spoke to the people followed by Presidet Young. When He finished speaking a list of Names was read who had signed a document Betraying the brethren & they were all Cut off some 16 in number."

"We here found Brother Thomas B. Marsh quite Crazy. He had [been] Confined by being Chained up. He was now better. [Attended?] Meeting. He hert his tongue runing like a Flutter wheel when He had a Ch[ance?] & the spittle drulling down out of his mouth. This shows a sample of Apostacy & the Effects of Betraying his Brethren. The following are the names of the different Devils which He says are tormenting him. He gave the Names as follows:"

"Marrianeuba Anonondo Oie"

"Harrewansdo Dononvah"

"Toddewandah Tonanando"

"Gandesande Annonvah"

"Sotecalandaco Pluto"

"When Oie got into him He would Jerk him around the house in a dredful manner so that it almost killed him."
