Mormon History, 21 June 1846

[Brigham Young Discourse] I told the brethren not to ride another man's horse without leave; that one hundred mounted men, wagons with provisions, etc., for them are to be raised to guard the camp, and any man who sleeps on guard will be punished. I acknowledged the hand of the Lord in bringing us from Nauvoo. I called on all who were willing to do as I commanded to hold up their right hands; hands up generally. -- Council Bluffs, Iowa [Manuscript History of Brigham Young, 1846- 1847. Elden J. Watson, ed.
