Title Diary of Brigham Young, page xvi
Description Library; significant Brigham Young letters have been acquired through purchase and gift by the University of Utah Library; correspondence and miscellaneous items fre- quently turn up at the great libraries on the East and West coasts. As an example, a few years ago, Wayne State Uni- versity at Detroit, Michigan, was given a collection of books and manuscripts, among which was discovered a journal of Brigham Young's for the months of May-September 1857, a crucial period in his life and events in Utah.
