* Missouri Mormon Troubles

Inside has an article headed: "The Mormon Affair" which includes: "...the senate passed on the 3rd upon the joint resolutions of the Mo. Legislature, 'The first resolution'...declares that it is inexpedient at this time to prosecute the investigation into the cause of the Mormon disturbances and the conduct of the military in suppressing them. The second, that none of the documents or evidence accompanying the governor's message ought to be published with the sanction of the legislature. The third, that a committee should be appointed to consist of members of both branches, to be vested with power to investigate the whole matter and report to the governor. This resolution was amended in the house so as to require the governor to convene the legislature when the committee reported. The first and second resolutions were passed and the third rejected. Judge King lately presided at an anti-Mormon meeting in Ray county. He is the judge of that circuit and the Mormon prisoners, now in jail, are to be tried before him. Truly, they have an excellent chance for a fair and impartial trial.".
Other content includes: "Indian Barbarity" "Enlargement of the Erie Canal" and much more.
Complete in  16 pages, 8 1/4 by 12 inches, very nice condition.
