[William Clayton Writings]
P.M. went to J[oseph]'s to ask him to come to my house & marry Margt. Butterfield to her first husband. He could not come but sent Hyrum. I learned from H[yrum]. that E[mma]. had power to prevent my being admitted to J[oseph]'s Lodge for the present for which I feel somewhat sorry but yet believe that innocence will finally triumph[.] I stood as proxy for Edwd. Lawrence. ... Evening I attended the [Masonic] Lodge
