[Wilford Woodruff]
I met in Council with the Twelve & High Council & herd a Charge prefered by the Policee against E. D Wolley for making use of sedicious language against the Authorities of the Church. ...

Br Wooley in his plea expressed his feelings that the Hickery Clubs carried by the policee, & the Council for Bishops to preside over Any parties in the place to keep order, ... Br Wooley made his confession that he had spoken in an improper manner in a moment of passion. He was forgiven by the council & all was settled....

Brs Pratt & Levi Richards & myself visited Br Henman's family to administer to them for the whole family was sick & had been troubled with evil spirits. We prayed with this family & laid hands upon 7 that were sick of the Household. The spirit of the Lord was with us & we rebuked the sickness & commanded the evil spirits to depart & they recieved A blessing upon the family. [Hosea Stout, chief of police noted: "The trial was the cause of much good as the people were enlightened on the object & intention of a police. The dark cloud of dissatisfied and murmuring feeling was for the time dispelled."]
