July 24 1857- 10 years to a day- I first heard of the intended expedition to Utah under Genl Harney.G3 I feel the Same now. I defy all the powers of darkness. Friday 21. Spent a Short time in office-attended to Sealings at Endowment House. returned 3 P.M. done buisness as usual. Saturday 22. came into office early done buisness as usual. consider- able many callers. Afternoon rode down to Bro Chases to See my wife Clarisa Chase, who is very Sick. returned late. A gentle rain fell almost during the whole day. James Simonds (a delaware) called to See if we would let the delaware Indians have the Weber Valley provided they would move to this country. I told them Yes.`" I took cold today afflicted with a Severe tooth ache. FzThis is a questionable statement in vicvv of all the informa- tion that was available to Brigham Yotmg long before July 24, 1857. See footnote 52. In a letter of October 4, 1856, to George Q. Cannon (almost a full year before this entry), Rri,ghmr Ymng makes the follow ing statement which is a foreboding of things to come. Describing the tmrest in Kansas, he says events there "will probably detain the U. S. Troops from visiting us perhaps another year or two." Young Letterbook, vol. 3, p. 105. 04The name James Simonds is used here, but he was more often called Ben Simonds or Benj. Simons. There is as much variety in the spelling of his name as there is in stating his ethnic origin, Here he is called a Delaware; elsewhere he is referred to as a mountain man, a Cherokee, a Frenchman, a half-breed Shawnee, a "sub chief of the Sho-Sho-nee," etc. In several gov- ernment documents, he is called a Delaware or "formerly of the Delaware Tribe."
