President [Brigham] Young said... I think if the Lord wants any steeling done he would reveal it to me as soon as to Bill Hickman, Ormus Bates, or any other thieves Bates has been ingaged with that Clan in steeling for a long time but if He will go now and behave himself I will let all pass ...

[Wilford Woodruff, Historian's Private Journal, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
