165 years ago today - Sep 10, 1858

[Wilford Woodruff]
I learned this morning that there was another Row on East Temple street last evening. Two Gamblers shot each other. One was shot dead. The other had a Ball in his head & one in his thigh. Another man was found dead in a woodpile. He was a Draggoon who was unmercifully beat a few days ago by a Lieut.

Thus we have the fruits of Christianity & Civilization as manifest in the world introduced into our Territory.
