Mormon History, Oct 24, 1845. Friday.

[William Clayton Journal] ...Evening at Elder Taylors. We then had prayers as usual, and all felt that the Lord will deliver B[igelow] out of their hands. After prayer, it was decided that Mary Smith and Emma have all the wood they want off the church land. Also that we establish an agency over the river to receive and take care of tithing grain until spring so that when we move we can take it as we go. It was recommended that J[ohn] E. Page be appointed for that agency if he will do it. It was decided not to hire Pecks Mill, inasmuch as he wants $300 down for 6 months rent.
President Young seemed dissatisfied that Elder Taylor did not take more interest in our councils. We had to sit without a fire.
