Pres. Brigham Young met in general council [of Fifty] at the Seventies Hall in Nauvoo. Pres. Brigham Young related the following: "I dreamed last night that we had a room the size of the Seventies Hall full of all sorts of people, some with long faces, four feet long, some with clean faces, some with dirty faces, some with pigs' heads, etc. I went and looked at them. Judge [Stephen A.] Douglass said he had been looking at those objects of pity and thought this generation had come to a pretty pass. I thought they had no power to hurt any one."
