Mormon History, Aug 12, 1849

[Hosea Stout Diary] Sund 12th. Went to meeting in the fore noon and at 4 oclock Mr Pomroys trial came off[.] He was tried before the people.
Some 5 or six of our people came forward and testified that they knew Mr Pomroy in Missouri during the time of our difficulties and that he was our warm friend and had to send off his family & property to keep them from mob violence such was the antipathy against him because he took such an active part in our favor.
Suffice it to say he was honorably acquitted.
