Great Salt Lake City Dec. 15, 1851
To President Isaac Mosley.
Dear Brother
Your communications have been received. Marshall Haywood and Major Rose, Indian Sub Agent will relieve you from further trouble in relation to the Mexican traders. Bro. Siler has obtained some books which I hope will be preserved and safely returned to their owners
I am glad that the brethren there are energetic in bringing those offenders to justice. Let the evidence be made to appear as plain as possible as the case will most probably be published.
Provide the witnesses that shall be necessary to make the case plain and positive, on hand, have Arrowpien come down also. Tell him we want to see him, and have him stay till the trial is over
Peace and quietness prevades the City as well as a general time of health prevailing.
In relation to the Indian children Major Rose will attend to that matter, of course the Mission cannot think of keeping them wherein they have fed them no doubt they will get their pay
I am as ever your Brother in the Gospel

Brigham Young
