[William Clayton]
This evening I heard Elder [Orson] Hyde in the Masonic Hall. He proved very plain that Elder Rigdons course since he came here has been a continued course of deception and falsehood and that his object is to scatter the people and break up the foundation laid by our beloved prophet Joseph Smith. The people seem to feel indignant at Elder Rigdon for it is now reduced to a certainty that he is conspiring with the apostates to bring a mob upon us.
