The house of Representatives of the Congress of the United States has this day turned the Last key that seals their Condemnation and lays the foundation for the overthrow & final destruction of the United States government. They have this day passed the Edmund Tucker Bill which takes away Every political Civil & Religious right of near 200,000 of the Latter Day Saints because of our religion. This Bill will pass the Senate be signed By the President & Become a Law, the most unconstitutional Law Ever past By any Republican government on Earth.
