160 years ago today - Jun 29, 1862

Br Brigham spoke on the principle of apostacy. Spoke of the clan that had been led by Morris and Banks. Showed their folly and wickedness; forbid any of the Elders of Israel to baptize any of them at their peril. Said let them alone and let them wait a thousand years and then see what chance [there] will be for them. Forbid them coming into the congregation of the Saints. Said he would kick them out if they came nigh [to] him.
