["Fruits of Mormonism", Vermont Chronicle ]
"Henry Cobb, of Boston, has obtained a divorce from his wife Augusta, she having been converted to the 'spiritual wife' doctrines of a portion of the Mormons, and gone to live with Brigham Young, who claims to be the legitimate successor of Joe Smith. Elder Adams, theatrical performer and preacher, who was formerly connected with the Mormon sect, and one of their 'great guns,' was the principal witness against Mrs. Cobb."
