Description Saturday 25- This morning the teams had all left by 9 O.C. a.m. And I with my teams brought up the rear. Arrived home about 6 O.C. P.M. after a very severe days travel the distance being 22 YT miles a little over. and we were hindered much in the Kanyon waiting for teams to get out of our way. Spent the evening looking over the papers from [the] States with Bros Heber & Daniel. The feeling against us in the States is some what abateing. The government movement is somewhat late. Judge Drummond has most thouroughly eaten himself up.53 tainly not in the dramatic manner described by historians Tullidge and Stenhouse, who give a word-for-word duplicate account. Edward W. Tullidge, History of Salt Lake City (Salt Lake City: Star Printing Company, 1886), p. 159; T. B. H. Stenhouse, The Rocky Mountain Saints: A Full and Comfilctc History of the Mormons (New York: D. Appleton Company, 1873)) 350. BWi. W. Drummond was one of the most despised men to hold federal office in Utah. Appointed associate judge of the territorial court in 1854. Drummond was soon in head-to-head conflict with the people of Utah. He strenuously objected to the Utah court system, especially the fact that the probate court was assigned original jurisdiction in civil and criminal cases, thereby reducing the district court, over which he presided, to a lessel role than he felt it deserved. Drummond chose to lecture the Mormons on their moral standards and polygamy, when he himself had deserted a wife in the Midwest and brought another woman to Utah with him. Finding life uncomfortable in Utah, hc left his post and sub- mittcd his resignation to Jeremiah S. Black, United States attorney general. In his letter, he detailed a series of charges that were inflammatory and mostly false. Nevertheless, they were accepted at face value by persons in government and were reproduced in many periodicals of the nation. Set Utah Expedition, H. Ex. Dot. 71, pp. 212-14 for the full text of Drummond's letter, also reprinted with comments in Harpers Weekly Journal of Civiliza- tion, 28 March 1857; Illinois State Journal (Springfield), 18 and 21 April 1857. The Mormon church periodicals felt called upon
