    Incidents Of Travel And Adventure In The Far West; With Col. Fremont'S Last Expedition Across The Rocky Mountains: Including Three Months' Residence In Utah, And A Perilous Trip Across The Great American Desert To The Pacific - 1859 - PREFACE - IN preparing this volume for publication, I have not followecl any established system of arrangement. The incidents are most of them transcripty from original l e t ters, written in the familiar style of f iendlp correspondence. The description ef a journey from Great Salt Lake City to San Bernandino, is an exact copy from my journaI, written after many dajs of wearisome travel. l Tbe blormon Episodes, I have rendered almost verbatim from personal relations by the parties themselves, and not from - hearsay . While the Latterday Saints publicly adopt every opportunity to openly avow and zealously propagate the System of Polygamy-in direct opposition to the established and acknowledged code of morality, as practieed by all civilized nations01 bu exercise my prerogative in exposing some of its abuses, which consider destructive to morality, female delicacy, and the sanctity of marriage. PREFACE. To prove the correctness and authenticity of y statements, with regard to the moral and ecclesiastical views of the Latterday Saints, I have appended to-the end of this volume, several discourses and addresses, eomq of which were delbered during my sojourn in Utah, by President Brigham Young and his apostles, and reported by G. D. Watt, Esq. of Great SaIt Lake City For the rest, I submit myself to an indulgent public. - CONTENTS - . CHAPTER I. First Introduction to Col.
