[Apostle Wilford Woodruff]
In the Evening I Called at the City Hall to see Edward Tullidge who had became insane. I was left alone with him. I laid hands upon him & rebuke the devels & they Came out of him & he beged of me to take him home. He promised me faithfully to obey me in all things if I would take him to his family who were in my house. Upon this promise I took him by the arm & led him home in his right mind.

I spent the Evening with him reading the news of the day. He went to bed with his Brother John, & slept untill about 1 oclok. Then the devil entered into him & he raged Badly. I arose & went to him & again laid hands upon him & Cast the Devel out of him in the name of Jesus Christ. And he remained quiet untill about day light when the Devil again Entered into him & he raged in a dredful manner. We gave him his breakfast & I took him by the arm & walked with him back to the City Hall & left him in the hands of the poliece.
