To the Honorable, the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled: Your memorialists, the Governor and Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Utah, feeling a deep and abiding interest in the future welfare of our distant and isolated Territory; and also in the welfare and elevation of her sons and daughters in the ranks of science and literature; and the more so, because past scenes of confusion, disorder and mobocracy have deprived us, in a great measure, of the privilege and blessing of granting unto our children, our sons and our daughters, the facilities for education which are ever the pride and boast of a free people, and which alone can secure, unimpaired, to coming generations, the blessings of enlightened freedom; respectfully beg leave to ask your honorable body to appropriate the sum of twenty five thousand dollars, to advance the interests of the University established by law in the City of the Great Salt Lake, and that the said sum be applied to the above purpose under such regulations and restrictions as your-honorable body may point out.
