  • The report of Chief Justice Lemuel G. Bandebergh, Judge Perry A. Brocchus, and Secretary B.D. Harris, of the Utah Territory, to the president of the United States. The article gives a lengthy description of the state of affairs in Utah Territory. The Mormons, and particularly their leader, Brigham Young, have complete control over the territory; it is feared that Mormon authority will come into conflict with government authority. The Mormon leaders have made bold statements against the United States government and declare that the government is opposed to the Mormons. The Mormon leaders refuse to cooperate with U.S. representatives. Utah is in a state of lawlessness, and the article cites in particular the murder of Mr. James Munroe as an example of the state of affairs. Brigham Young is accused of embezzling money sent for the benefit of the public by Congress. The Mormons have refused to accept government representatives’ assertion that the United States is kindly disposed toward Utah and its people. Continued on 8 Jan 1852.
