Hosea Stout Journals

February 6, 1848

Summary: Stout is presented with charge for abusive conduct in regards to speech given to council.

Journal entry: Sunday Feb. 6th 1848. I was around town today. President Isaac Morley wanted me to assist him in putting his Emmegration Co. together, which I undertook. Today I was presented by Pres Joseph Young with a charge against me by John Pack for abuse & conduct in the speech I made in the Council last Saturday in the case of the whiskey. While Prest H. Kimball and the Presiding officer were present, he did not call him to order, but being completely repulsed, he flew to the Seventies to gratify his disappointed feelings.
