Summary: Council met all day. Disagreements arise.

Journal entry: Sat. Jan 22nd 1848. Went to Council again which was mostly spent in reading & correcting the minutes of yesterday's council. The Twelve & A. W. Babbit then came in. Council continued all day. Babbitt made a long report about the Committee Ship, It was not very satisfactory. Brigham repramanded him once quite sharpley & he flew off in a tangent and tried to resign his office & Trustee.

Drew another order on a store for taxes amounting to 15-00. Then went to the office to see about sending the police Committee off tomorrow.
