After these things, and some <other> were said, the Committee refused to consult on the subject. Only the same three attended that were in yesterday— The Chairman observed, they had not expressed any opinion relative to the subject; but observed that his mind was made up in relation to the matter— I think from all I have discovered, Mr. [Oliver H.] Smith of will be on the side of justice But how the thing will terminate I cannot tell—
Mr. Crittendon [John J. Crittenden] & Mr. [Robert] Strange are the two absent members of the committee—
Yours in the bonds of love,
.
Joseph Smith. Jr. [p. 103]
