On the subject arose about burning up our city President Young said I think we shall use this room for a few years to come yet I mean to be ready. The subject of the death of Parley P. Pratt ^came up^. A foreboding of his death he felt strongly in spirit. As he was about to start for meeting He felt this so much that he said there are some men in this city who thirsts for my blood. As he was about to start for meeting this feeling was so strongly upon him that he did not wish to go. Brother Pollard did not think there was any danger but Brother Pratt made him promise that he would protect him until his return before he would leave for the meeting. At this very time Mr McClean had taken lodgings adjoining Parley's room and was attending his meetings with loaded weapons seeking an opportunity to kill him. George A Smith advised Parley P. Pratt not to go to Arkansas but to go direct to Salt Lake and take care of himself. He told Parley if he went to try to Protect Eleanor and her children he would loose his life; but he did not take care of himself nor take George A. Smith's counsel but went to Arkansas and was murdered by Mr McClean
