[Wilford Woodruff]
Attended the School of the Prophets and President Brigham Young took up the subject of the derision of the Election on Monday for Mayor, Aldermen, & Councilors & Legrand Young's Name was scratched off & E. D. Woolley put on & Elected. President Young rebuked (in the strongest terms) D. H. Wells and all the men who were preset [present] for not stopping the opposition. I never herd him speak in such power & spirit.)
