After these things, and some <other> were said, the Com mittee 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.   <Thomas>Smith of Indiana will be on the side of justice  But how the thing will terminate I cannot tell—
Mr. [James J.]Crittendon & Mr. [Robert]Strange are the two absent  members of the committee—
Yours in the bonds of love,
.
Joseph Smith. Jr. [p. 103]
