Anonymous Letters to Brigham Young

In his roles as both Church leader and Governor of the Utah Territory, Brigham Young received thousands of letters, and it was not uncommon for him to receive anonymous letters.   Some of these were intended to convey friendly advice or warnings, some were death threats, and some pleaded with him to shut down offensive plays  in Salt Lake City.   In these letters, we get a surprising glimpse into life in Pioneer Utah.
