[Brigham Young Sermon]
Pres. Young said I would like an article written referring to Haun's Mill Massacre, noticing instances when Indians had massacred the whites. Pres. said it will be in the States and then other countries, that if a man lived a truthful, honest, virtuous life, he will be accused of being a Mormon, and he will have to leave their society if he will not enter into their wickedness. -- Salt Lake City
