["Bogus Brigham" arrest]
About two oclock a company of the governors troops came in the city with a United States writ for some of 12 and came to the Temple and while they were there not knowing what to do Br William Miller & G. D. Grant came down out of the Temple and started to Brigham carriage and as they were going Br Grant called Br Miller President Young & asked him if he did not want to take a ride and the officer hearing what was said immediately arrested Br Miller and took him down to the Mansion House and from thence to Carthage not knowing but they had Br Young until they had got there.
