Mormon History, Oct 25, 1845. Saturday.

[William Clayton Journal] ...Evening met the brethren at Elder Taylors. Brother [Almon] Babbit related the circumstance of Father [Nathan] Bigelow shooting Lieutenant [] Edwards...We talked the matter over...and then offered up the signs and asked the Lord to overrule the matter and take it out of [Major] Warrens heart that he may not declare Martial law or otherwise let his hand be heavy upon him with judgment that he may not be able to bring trouble upon this people. President Young seems quite unwell.
