Oct 9, 1871 This morning President Young prepared to go to the Court room at 10 oclok to answer the writ served upon him by the U.S. Marshall. The Court Room was Crouded by the friends of Presidet Young & thousands were in the street. Finally word was sent to Presidet Young not to Come untill 2 ock.

At 2 oclok The Presidency Twelve & many other went to the Court room. Wm Jinnings & John Sharp gave bail for him in the sum of $5,000. Hempsted one of his lawyiers pied to Quash the Inditemet. The court adjourned till 10 oclok to morrow.

... I then Called upon the presidt Young & staid at his office untill 10 oclok. He feels very calm with regard to his present Persecutions. He feels that the Lord will deliver him.
