Abraham H. Cannon telegraphs to his father: "Tell Louis confidentially his case is fixed alone." "Louis" was a code name for First Counselor George Q. Cannon who was hiding out in the Mormon Underground. His son had made a special effort to help his father, who was in hiding on the underground, securing from government officials a promise that if George Q. Cannon would voluntarily submit to trial for polygamy and plead guilty, he would receive a light sentence.
