Presidet Young preached in the morning upon the subjet of Apostacy & death including Joseph Morris and those gathered with him at South webber [Morrisites]. He said if he had had his own way he would have let them staid & rotted there. He would not have disturbed them but Judge Kinney thought the Law must be honored & magnifyed & he Called out a posse & it Cost the lives of two innocent men of that posse & several of the Morrisites were killed.
