Title Diary of Brigham Young, page 025
Description at thier request, gave Some Suggestions with regard to a military uniform which would be comfortab[I]e & con- venient and particularly recom[m]ended the use of Such materials as can be manufactured here, in order to Stimulate "home manufactures," retain the profits of our industry and become capable of liveing within our- selves as Soon as possible."" Saturday 20 This morning Bro Heber called, and after Some con- versation, insisted upon my accepting his new Carriege which I finally did, on the condition, that he would use it whenever he needed it. Rode out with Bro. Kimball and Joseph, visited Bro Kings Shop, Public WorkszC & attended to general buisness of the day. Gave Some directions regarding Bishop Wm R. Smith's & Sanford Porters mill, and also a meeting House for Centervillc Ward. Rec[eived] a hotice from Bishop Silas Richards, That, in compliance with my council to the Settlements, by Joseph Smith who, at the time of his murder in 1844, held the title of lieutenant general. See Hamilton Gardner, "H&or) of the 222nd Field Artillery," Utah State Historical Society. *"Here is a good indicator of President Young's efforts to make his people as self-sufficient as possible. He was a strong promoter of home industry and eventually formed co-operatives and the communistic United Order to gain even grcatcr inde- pendence from non-Utah sources of supply. Arrington's Great Basin Kingdom has a good treatnlent of efforts toward econolnic self-sufficiency. 2CCharles King was employed in the construction of new wagons for the express company. Whether this was a private venture or part of the church`s public works program is not certain, probably the latter situation prevailed. Later on, King became a contractor and builder. Sloan's 1869 Directory shows King doing business in the Eighth Ward on Third South betwren East Temple and First East streets. E. L. Sloan, romp., The Salt Lake City Directory and Business Guide for 1869 (Salt Lake City, Utah: E. L. Sloan & Company, 1869), p. 119.
