Description cor.[r]esponding Secratary. My health Quite poor to day. Did not attend to business, further than was necessary. Gave Some directions to Bro Geo. D. Grant; about fit- ting up the Wilkie establishment as a depot for the Expres[s] Company. Thursday 18 continued feeble this for[e]noon-afternoon felt better, visited the office, but did not attend to much buisness. The multitude of buisness connected with the collecting of the cattle, and the fatigue of my visit to cottonwood Kanyon Seems to have rather over done me, but I think a few days rest will Set me to rights. Friday 19 Forenoon attended to a few minor matters which pre- sented themselves. i\fternoon Bros. G. A. Smith & J. M. Bernhisel called had a long conversation on Politicks interspersed with anacdotes of many of our nations GREAT (?) men. Evening Spent an hour or two with the committe[e] on costume for the Nauvoo Legior?' defection from the church is also uncertain. The standard church biographies ignore Brown. But in the Young Journal, August 8, 1858%September 20, 1863, under date of April 14, 1860 (p. ii), an entry appears stating that Orson Pratt called on the president to ask on behalf of "T. D. Brown, who had lately been cut off the Church," if he, Orson, could attend to the sealing of Broxcn's father and mother. Brigham gave his consent. Brooks, in her account of Brown, gives his excommunication as December 23, 1861, and his reinstatement as January 9, 1862. He again left the church in 1869 and affiliated with the Godbeites, a group allied with William S. Godbe who disagreed with Brigham Young's economic policies. He became a merchant in Sal; Lake and Tooele and died on March, 20 1874. Brown, Diary of Thomas D. Brown, pp. 139-40. Note that from this entry on, the Brigham Young Diary is written in first person "I" instead of the previous third person. 24The Nauvoo Legion was the name given to Utah's militia. It was a continuation of the military force created in Illinois
