Page 3 has: "The State Of Deseret" which begins: "The progress of the Mormon sect in this country...must be regarded as an extraordinary phenomenon of the times. From small beginnings they have gone on increasing steadily in spite of persecutions & hardships..." with more, including: "The converts to this faith, moreover, do not appear to belong to that class of enthusiasts that give way to hallucinations. The Mormons are a practical people; they are industrious, temperate, orderly...These people, having been driven from Illinois a few years ago, abandoned their city of Nauvoo suddenly...They have taken possession of the Great Basin, in the region of the Salt and Utah Lakes...They have organized a Territorial Government..." and more.
Four pages, very nice condition.
