175 years ago today - Tuesday, Aug 11, 1846.

Heard a good report from Brother Pratt concerning the Battalion and Colonel Allen. Said it was reported in Missouri that President Polk had issued his proclamation that the Mormons had better not be in haste in going to California, that they should be protected and paid for all their losses in Missouri and Iowa....

In the council, President Young referred to a man who had passed $15 bogus below the settlement and gone on west in Miller's company; that he had sent for him to return immediately and pay the man, satisfy him for his trouble, repent and make satisfaction to the Church, or he should pay fourfold if [it] took the last farthing he possessed, and be cast out from among us, and that is the law to Israel, and you may write it.

[Apostle Willard Richards Journal]
