Dear Sir
I received per the hand of his Hon. Perry E. Brocchus, Associate Judge of the United States Court for Utah, one of your justly celebrated revolving pistols medium size--
I take pleasure in saying that I consider it not only one of the best of the kind, but the best kind of arms, known as pistols, that I have any knowledge of.
Be pleased to accept my thanks for the present, which I shall always esteem a favor to have the privilege of honorably using, when duty shall require. in the defence of the innocent, or the punishment of the guilty.

I am Sir
With high consideration
Yours most respectfully
Brigham Young
