Great Salt Lake City, May 3rd. 1854.
William Kay,
Bishop of Kay's Ward.
Dear brother,
My brother P. H. Young has presented a petition which has been liberally signed by the brethren of your ward for the vacation of a certain road in your ward, and for the location of a new one. This petition is, as it should be,addressed to the County Court to whom it is referred.
I further understand, that some disaffected persons are pulling down fences, and thereby exposing crops to destruction. It is to this point that I wish to call your attention; as I am about to leave on my southern tour I wish you to stop this tearing down fence business until I shall return, as I always like to have a hand in when such things are transpiring. You will please to give attention to this subject and preserve peace and quietness, and the crops in your neighborhood.
Truly,
Your brother in the Covenant

Brigham Young
