Description Bror Morris to have a rehearing before the High Council : I tried to get a few cattle to save some hundreds to give the Indians, for half a day in vain & then Bror Blackburn was on hand to drive off the necessary cattle with an Ironhand, & I know he will do what he is told: "The priesthood must have no private feeling in administering judgement and justice. We have got to fight the devil mentally & physically or join hands with him. We have got to come to this. Joseph "Adultery, if a woman's affection are adulterated she has been improperly treated & should not bed with him, it would [be] adultery." No law to bind a woman to a man here, but in the resur- rection, purity will make every man & woman will be satisfied to be where they should be; and if a High priest & a good man loses a wife & she prefers an elder in the resurrection, the High priest can & will say where she 9 including the subsequent trial of Burton on ~nutder charges fat his role. See also G. M. Howard, "Men, Motive?, and Misundcr- standings: A New Look at the Morrisite War of 1862," 1 `tall Historical Quarterly, 41( 1976) : 112-32. Morris began to have troublr in the spring of 1857 when hr had his first "revelations" calling him to be a prophet. See "A Brief History of John Banks and the Morrisite Movemmt," typescript, Utah State Historical Society, Salt Lake City, p. 4. The Manuscript History of March 8, 1857, pp. 91-92 contains a letter from Orson Hyde about a man in Provo having heavenly visitations. Brigham Young branded the.se visitations as faire. Just what actions Bishop Elias Blackburn and Stake President James C. Snow had taken has not been determined. Forscutt, in his account, lays the blame for Morriu's problems on Stake President James C. Snow (p. 13). In hi? journal, Bishop Black- burn tells of the meeting in Brigham Young's office that occurred on June 2, 1857. He indicates the conferenct= related to thr case of H. Redfield in Provo. What this ~vas has not been learned. Blackburn Journal, p. 23. Additional information on the Joseph hlorris caSe is found in Larry J. Halford, "Mormons and Molrisitcs: A Study in the Sociology of Conflict" (Ph.D. diT,sertation, university of Montann, Mi~~oula, 19i2).
