John D. Lee: Returned to Mountain Meadows to be executed, Lee was given a moment to speak: "I have but little to say this morning. Of course I feel that I am on the brink of eternity, and the solemnities of eternity should rest upon my mind. … I am ready to die. I trust in God. I have no fear. Death has no terror. … I ask the Lord my God, if my labors are done, to receive my spirit."
