Description to conquer a title for it. And on every Side were Scores of miles of mountains, which must be past ere our Settle- ment could be appro[a]ched. Here we have dwelt in peace and prosperity. The Lord has blessed the earth for our sakes. And the "Desert" has "truly blossomed as the rose." All was hilarity and mirth the morn[in]g guns had been fired 3 rounds in honore of the first presidency -three times three groans were uttered for Mysouri- the guards & my son John W.[`]s company had been paraded, three "rounds" for the hope of Isreal. The bands were playing and every one at peace, when the news came that A 0 Smoot, Judson L. Stoddard, 0. Pr Rockwell William Garr & Judge Elias Smith would be in camp in a few minutes. They came, and were welcomed by the band, & 3 deaf[e]ning cheers. They were ushered into the Lewt General's (occu- pied by my family) Marquee. found that Bros Smoot & * Stoddard were from fort Leavenworth 20 days. They informed [me] that a new Govornor and entire set of officers had been appointed, 2500 troops with 15 months provision. Sup[p]osed That General [William S.] Harney would command-to support them officials in their posi- tion. I Said if General Harney came here, I Should then know the intention of [the] gover[n]ment; And it was carried unanimouslv that if Harnev crossed the South , Pass the buz[z]ards Should pick his bones. - -- The feeling of Mobocracy is rife in the "States" the constant cry is kill the Mormons. Let them try it. The Utah mail con- tract had been taken from us-on the pretext of the unsettled state of things in this Territory."' The news helped the people to enjoy themselves. Dancing and mirth continued until a late hour. `"This clay's entry pregents one of the contl o~clrial portions of the diary. It records the arrival at the ccleblation of the threr messengers, A. 0.
