His Excellency, T. Reynolds. Esq”s.
Dear Sir. By the reports of the United States Senate,
I learn that a report of the Legislature of your State has been
made by a committee of that body, to the house upon the
difficulties that occured with the Mormons in the year of 1838.
Many of my fellow citizens, as well as myself are anxious
to see that report, our Country has been flooded with their
garbled pamphlets and newspapers, announcing the
Democratic State of
of murderers and outlaws, their preachers, and in fact their
whole society are at work on the weak and credulous pos-
=tion of community palming off their Slanders and false=
=hoods to gain proselytes through Sympathy. Will you be so
kind as to send copies of that Report to W.A Cowdery
Cyrus Smallings, Nathan Daggeth, and Jacob Bump Esqr”s
and one to myself. I should not of troubled you for the
above favor for myself and worthy citizens had or wou=
that Report found its way here in the public papers.
I am Sir your obedient Servent
His Excellency T. Reynolds Esq’s
Governor of the State of
City of Jefferson
