Opened by prayer of J. Smith Junr. The following  charge or complaint against certain brethren  therein named was presented by John Smith.
To the president of the High council of the church  of Latter Day Saints in Kirtland. Brother, it having  come to my knowledge that there is a difficulty exist ing between brethren, (Viz.) Alpheus Cutler, Asa  Lyman & Reynolds Cahoon, which is injurious to the  cause of truth among us. I have made an exer tion to reconcile them to each other, but to no  effect, I therefore lay the case before the council  for decision.
