by Utah Territory
Salt Lake City, U.T.: [LDS Church], 1869. [LDS Church]. Fine. 4pp, folio. Display-type headline, text printed in small typeface. The main story in this issue is a speech in the US Congress by Hon. W.H. Hooper, Delegate from Utah Territory, on the Bill to extend the boundaries of the States of Nevada, Minnesota, and Nebraska, and the Territories of Colorado, Montana, and Wyoming. Hooper advocated striking out sections of the bill that related to Utah Territory, expounding on the trials of the polygamouis Mormons who were forced to move from place to place until they planted a colony "some twenty years ago in a savage wilderness, remote from other civilized associations...like the kindred colonies of Massachusetts, of Maryland, and of the Carolinas, the offspring of religious persecution, &c., &c. He goes on at length to tell what the Mormons have accomplished in Utah Territory, and why they should now be left in peace, &c. 15,5" x 11"
Hooper's rather famous speech occupies more than three pages of this issue. (Inventory #: 038334)
