[Brigham Young]

George Taylor & others, -- a fresh supply of newspaper scraps ... gave satisfactory Evidence that the Devil is [?] his scepter over this Great Republic. The North, the South, the East, the West, the Politicians, the Priests, the Editors ... all take up the cry for blood! Blood! blood! Exterminate the Mormons sweep them from the earth, go to their Mountain home, lay waste their Cities, destroy their Crops drive off their Stock, raze their dwellings to the ground, cause an innocent people to flee for safety and then return and gloat ever the misery we have caused ... But the day is nigh at hand when the Lord will Mete out a reward to tho wicked according to their [des?]
