[George Q. Cannon]
The last time I was in this place [Pettiville] Prest. Young in going out of the town saw a wolf and fired a pistol at it out of his carriage. The pistol in recoiling struck him in the nose making a severe wound, from the effect of which he fainted. The affair created great excitement in the company. This must be twelve or thirteen years since. ... I learned there were 125 members of the Sunday School in this place, which shows how prolific the parents must be, being a large number of children for the number of families.
