[Hosea Stout]
Gov Cuming declared it was his intentions to make favorable reports to government for us and do all he could to prevent a colission between us and the U. S. He expresses to be dissatisfied with the doings of Col Johnson and the troops at Bridger &c &c &c &c &cahem!He was very much astonished to find that the Utah Library and the Court records were not burned as reported to government and wondered how such utterly false reports could be raised ect ect ect

We very courteously recieved and treated by both them and left with an invitation to "call again when convenient"
