Description the history of one Mogo, after which I do not think he had So much relish for his dinner.41 At Noon Sealed Se&al couples. Afternoon, Elders H. C. Kimball [blank] preached there was a large congregation present, and a good Spirit manifested. Met with circle, Good attendance of Brethren. from extracts from "Mormon" it appears that our brethren east are breaking down, in argument, all who oppose. 41The case of Charles Mogo is an interesting one. This is an instance when a non-Mormon found it difficult to live in a society composed of people of one religious belief and its conse- quent intolerance. Mogo came to Utah in 1855 employed as a teamster for W. H. Hooper, Mormon merchant. Shortly after his arrival, he went to work for United States Surveyor David Burr. 29 June 1857, Young Letterbook, vol. 3, p. 684; Utah Exfxxlition, H. Ex. Dot. 71, pp. 54-55, 117-18. Mogo was surveying in San Pete County when he encoun- tered difficulty with the local populace, so he came to Salt Lake where he and two other employees in the surveyor's office were attacked. One of the clerks, C. G. Landon, fled to California; the other two accompanied some Californians to Fort Laramie where they sought protection from the United States troops en route to Utah. Mogo left so percipitously that he left behind a wife and child. In October, Brigham Young had Mogo's wife and child and others who desired to leave Utah escorted to Colonel E. B. Alexander's troops stationed on Hams Fork. Although the exact details of the events relating to Mogo, William Wilson, and Landon may have been somewhat distorted by David Burr in his message to Washington, other corroborating testimony indicates that there was an attack by Mormons upon the three men in Burr's employ. Young Journal, August 1852- December 24, 1857, p. 288, and the Manuscript History of August 19, 1857, p. 436 give an account of Brigham Young's chastisement of some of the attackers-pointing out that their actions would harm the cause of the Mormons. No specific details on Charles Mogo's misdeed have been located. Apparently, he was singled out for a severe tongue lash- ing by Brigham.
