[Wilford Woodruff]

In the Afternoon the quorum of the Twelve met in Council & one of the most interesting Councils we ever held together on the earth. In the Begining of the Council two of the quorum was reproved Sharply for undoing what the majority of the quorum had done in the organizing of the camps for travelling. ... The President said if he did not tell us our faults we would be destroyed but if he told us of them & reproved us we would live in love & our hearts be semented together.

Brothers Parley P Pratt & J Taylor had been to england & done a good work. Had returned to winter quarters, & there done wrong by disorganizing the two divisions & Companies that the quorum of the Twelve had spent the whole winter in organizing & which was Also governed by revelation. Br Parley took the lead in the matter & entirly disregarded our organization & mixed the companies all up....

When the majority of the quorum of the 12 plant a stake of Zion & esstablish A President over the Stake & Appoint A High Council there Has the minority of the Twelve one or more any right to go & interfere with those Councils? ...
