Description Wedn[e]sday 16- Several Indians called upon me Two of them were from Oregon City. One was and-old Snake Chief who had never Seen me; but had heard that I talked "one way" & he wanted to See a man who did that." Attended to usual buisness of the day. directed my own mzt~+~~ buisness ect. Bros Kimball Wells-Carrington and others Spt?n& called during day. Thursday 17. Spent morning at Office. Afternoon Spent with Bro Albert Carrington Ed[itor] of "Deseret. News." Spent evening in office. Bro Kimball was at Bro Carringtons. Bro Wells did not come on acc[oun]t of his horse falling with him and hurting his thigh. Friday 18. Visited I&e Bro F Little's on return called at Bro Smithies &+++a and called at Bro Chases m > to Seeing my wife my Clarisa -who is very Sick., . . returned p at 12 O.C. P.M. Charles Decker and Justice Earl came in 4 days from Sweet water about 25 miles down- east of the e possession of them would try to make it. It was thought proper after awhile, least the making of liquor should grow contagious, to control it officially, which was done by the City Council of Salt Lake City taking hold of its manufacture and sale. The first bar-room was opened in the Salt Lake House, owned by President Young and Feramorz Little; this was done chiefly to accom- odate the travelling public, and it was the only one only, in this city, for years." John Taylor, "Reminiscences, 1884," dictated for H. H. Bancroft, Bancroft Library. Taylor's statement about only one bar in Salt Lake City for years, certainly was not true by the late 1860s. Bars were so numerous along Main Street that it was called "Whiskey Street." Tullidge, History of Salt Lake, p. 379. 8zSee footnote 72.
