Journal Entry

June 14, 1865 ~ Wednesday

14. In company with Presidents Young Kimball, & the Twelve
& others I visited Hon Mr Colfax, Gov Bowles & several others
we spent about two hours with them & had a free, social
interview they talked upon a variety of subjects among
the rest gold diging President Young showed Mr Calfax
How much better off those were who had stayed at home
cultivated the Earth, & made improvements than those who
had gone to dig gold. Mr Colfax thought that if we did
not opened the mines ourselves that others will President
Young said if they opened mines in this Territory it would
be against all the faith I can Exercise between myself & my
God for they the people have spent $20 for Every one they
have obtained from the mines.
