[Wilford Woodruff]

While I was at the office the Brethren from Sanpete arrived with 311 Tithing sheep from Manti & other settlements brought by Warren C Snow Bishop of Manti. They arived at 4 oclok. Bishop Snow reports that Arropeen is living 12 miles south of Manti & feels well but has a hard time to keep his people right. While trying to get some of them to give up stolen Horses & cattle several of them made an attack upon him & injoured his breast which has made him sick for 2 weeks.

... Arropeen has Delivered up 17 Head of Horses which Tintics band had stollen. Tintick who has stollen so many horses & cattle & killed so many men has sent word that he wants to come in. Will give up what he has left. Wishes to know if we are mad. Presidet Young will make him no promises but thinks he deserves to die. Kanosh has been kicked by a wicked horse. Has 3 ribs broke. He shot the Horse dead.
