[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 10th I wrote A letter to Mrs Woodruff. I had an Interview with Mr Copway the Ojibwa Indian Chief who is calling upon this Nation to stay their hand in the persecution of the Indians And is Carrying A petition to washington & Calling upon the Government to give the Indians A Territory that they may have for their own & not be driven any more. I had a plesant time with him.
