A correspondent in Wyoming reports on the relationship between the Mormons and the Indians. The Mormons have a policy of feeding, rather than fighting, the Indians and blame Indian uprisings on the cruelty of passing emigrants or individuals in the territory, not on the Church. Mormons who settle near Indians are encouraged to gather together for protection in case peace with the Indians should be broken. The author briefly describes a few Indian uprisings and describes the Nauvoo Legion. He gives a brief chronology of the Book of Mormon to explain why the Mormons feel that helping the Indians is one of their missions.
