160 years ago today - Jan 28, 1862

[See entry for Jan 27, 1862 for context.] Conversation during the day about Jn. Baptist who had stolen the burial clothing from the dead. When President Young heard that brother Richard Cook's clothing was taken from him, also the clothing of other good people he remarked that killing was too good for him, he ought to be branded stating his crime, turned out of Community and told that if he ever came back again, he would be killed to be a fugitive on the earth would be worse than killing him. -- Salt Lake City
