    November 27, 1857

    Friday 27th

    Arose 8 done some writing and other business. Got the daily paper “the Guardian” and read a long Article about the Mormons & the U.S. troops. It stated hostilities had actually commenced – but it was to be doubted wither the troops would achieve their purpose. Great fears were entertained that much more trouble then was expected would be caused by the “Mormons” before they could be reduced to Order!!! And that in all probability they would like the Israelites of old prove and extremely stiff necked people and if they were brought to reason!! It would have to be left to the regular army of the U.S. if it id to be performed at all. Thus we can plainly see terror and fear has taken hold of those who write and rule. After noon I walked to Stockport on some business.
