[William Clayton Journal]
A.M. conversing with Dr. [Joseph] Wakefield and others in the Bar Room, [Joseph Smith] telling a dream concerning his father killing a man who attempted to stab him. He also spoke concerning key words. The g[reat] key word was the first word Adam spoke and is a word of supplication. He found the word by the Urim and Thummim. It is that key word to which the heavens is opened.

A.M. at President Joseph's. 2 brethren ... saying that old Col. Williams' Company had been to demand their arms and they wanted to know if ... they must yield them. Joseph told them not to do it while they lived.

Various reports have come stating that the Warsawites have ordered the Saints to leave forthwith and threatening pretty bad.
