[George Q. Cannon]
President Taylor desired myself and Bro. Wells to accompany him this morning to Camp Douglas to make apology for not being present at the celebration at that place, for which General McCook, commanding officer, had made extensive preparations, and written an invitation to President Taylor to attend. ... We were treated with great respect at the Camp. Several bottles of wine were opened with which we wet our lips and drank the General's health.
