Salt Lake City: Deseret News. Very Good. 1870. Newspaper. A complete issue of the Deseret News, August 17, 1870, printing much of a publicized religious debate over polygamy that had taken place in the preceding days. The paper has light soil, a few tears, and an old Salt Lake City bookseller's stamp on the first page top margin. Protected in a hardcover red cloth binding with a peeling typewritten label on the spine with "Bible Sanction Polygamy" visible. The debate, between Brigham Young's polygamy spokesman Orson Pratt and U. S. Senate Chaplain J. P. Newman, took place over three days, arguing over the question Newman posed, "Does the Bible Sanction Polygamy?" The debate fills most of the issue, with additional correspondence between Brigham Young and J. P. Newman printed on the last page, where Young declines Newman's personal challenge to a debate and offers up Orson Pratt or John Taylor in his stead. ; 17" x 12"; 16 pp . (Inventory #: 011796)
