Office,
G. S. L. City, Nov. 30th. 1858.

Hon. C. E. Sinclair
U. S. Ass[e]. Justice for Utah Territory, and ex-office Judge

of Third Judicial Distr.
Sir:--
I was surprised to learn that a return had been made by an officer of your Court, and read in open Court this morning that an attempt had been unsuccessfully made to serve a subpoena upon me. I have received two summons from your Court left at my office by a gentleman who stated himself to be a U. S. Deputy Marshal. Nothing has ever been stated nor done in reference to the service of a Subpoena to my knowledge. Whenever I am required to appear in Court, being within a short distance of the Court room, I shall come at the notification of your honor or the officers of your Court.
I have the honor to remain Very respectfully Yours

Brigham Young
