Brigham Young speech
Scope and Contents
Photocopy of a handwritten copy of a speech given on 22 April 1856 in Emigration Canyon near Salt Lake City, Utah. The speech was recorded by J. N. Long. Young urges immigrants to walk to Utah as much as possible because that mode of transportation was faster than by wagon. This was probably an attempt to get support for handcart immigration. He also talks about taking precautions to protect the pioneers against Indians.
