NEW YORK TIMES, June 22, 1858 

* Utah War - Mormons
* Brigham Young


The front page has a one-quarter column with Mormon news: "From Utah" "Plenty of Provisions at Camp Scott--Safety of Capt. Marcy's Command--Trade with the Valley, etc."
One of the reports includes: "...a letter from Fort Bridger dated May 21st which says that Brigham Young's principal Mormon Elders had consented to deliver themselves into the custody of the United States Marshall to await trial..." with more.
Page 4 has: "Whither Will The Mormons Go?" which begins: "Once more the disciples of Joe Smith are afloat in the world. Four times have they abandoned their abodes to seek a new home. From Western New York they went to Ohio, thence to Missouri, and when driven by violence from that Zion, they found a resting place at Nauvoo...Their prophet was killed & their temple destroyed. Utah seemed at that day to offer an inviolable retreat..." and more.
Eight pages, rejoined at the blank spine, a bit close-trimmed at the right margin of page 4 only not close to mentioned reports, otherwise good condition.
