October 3, 1871

NEW YORK HERALD, Oct. 3, 1871

* Brigham Young - Mormons leader
* Arrested for polygamy - adultery (1st report)

The top of a page 9 column is headed: "The Knell Of Polygamy" "Arrest of Brigham Young" "Offenses Under the Territorial Laws' "Mormon Officials Taught a Severe Lesson". The article takes over half a column & includes in part: "...Brigham Young was arrested to-day by United States Marshal Patrick on an indictment found by the Grand Jury...for lewd and lascivious cohabitation with 16 different women..." and much more.
Sixteen pages, a bit irregular at the spine, good condition.
