[High Council Minutes]

Charge against Mrs Catherine Warren by George Miller for unchaste and unvirtuous conduct with John C. Bennett and others

The defendant confessed to the charge and give the names of several others who had been guilty of having unlawful intercourse with her stating that they taught the doctrine that it was right to have free intercourse with women and that the heads of the Church also taught and practised it which things caused her to be led away thinking it to be right but becoming convinced that it was not right and learning that the heads of the church did not believe nor practise such things she was willing to confess her sins and did repent before God for what she had done and desired earnestly that the Council would forgive her and covenanted that she would hence forth do so no more.

After which she was restored to fellowship by the unanimous vote of the Council.
