Description tains where horses could not be used, would be our resorF Friday 26. To day Spent .in the ofice as usual attending to buisness, hearing the news & dictated cor[r]espon[d]ance to 0 Pratt, H. S. Eldridge & others. The majority of the Twelve who are here called, as also H. C. Kimball, D. H. Wells, J. M. Bernhisel. & others. The reports from our various Settlements, are encourageing in regard to the faithfulness of the Saints and the prospect for abundance. Saturday 27. The malitia mustered in the various Sub. districts this forenoon, to complete organization 6.x. I remained at , "4The "bitter feeling" spoken of in the entry of Jlme 23, mostly arising from reports of federal officials who fled Utah fat a variety of reasons, undoubtedly put the Mormons on guard. They held fresh memories of difficulties with state troops and mobs in Illinois and Missouri. The territorial militia had jwt gone through a reorganization to be ready for any hostilities. See Ralph Hanson, "Administrative History of the Nauvoo Lc- gion in Utah" (master's thesis, Brigham Young Cniversity, 1954 ) and Gardner, "History of the 222nd Field Artillery." Chapter one in Gardner on "General Outline of Utah Military History" is especially valuable. Th ese are both good accounts of the territorial military organization. A good body of militia records is preserved in the Utah State Archives, State Capitol, Salt Lake City. "Bro Wells," was Daniel H. Wells, commanding general of the territorial militia, superintendent of the Public Works of the Mormon church, recently named (January 4, 1857) as one of two counselors to Brigham Young to form the "Presidency" of the Mormon church, and soon to become mayor of Salt Lake City. Wells was one of the commanding figures in early Ctah history. He died in Salt Lake City in 1891. The Manuscript History for 1857 has numerous rcferenccs to the reorganization of the Utah territorial militia. For csample, on April 11, 1857, General Order No. 1 is reproduced naming Daniel H. Wells as commanding officer of the militia and the commanders for each of the military districts of the territory.
