View selected quotes from this page in Wilford Woodruff's journal.

We were much surprised and amused at the audacity, and brazen cheek of Uncle Sam in demanding $4,000,00000 of the Church. And for what? Is the Nation in a state of bankruptcy and do they wish to fill up their coffers with the hard earnings of the people of God whom they have driven and robbed before and some of whom they have killed? It seemes as though this step on the part of the Nation is too glaring an act for the people of the United States even to look upon without a feeling of insecurity for themselves and their denominations; for if they can thus rob us, they can in like man- ner rob them, should they happen to fall under the displeasure of an Edmond or a Tucker. But we do not fear the result, for we know that the Lord is on our side, and we have every thing to encourage us. This step against the work of God will, as has been the lot of all others, result in the complete overthrow of our enemies and the fur- therence of the cause they are seeking to destroy.
~ William Paxman
We think it high time that the Saints were arroused from the lethargy
