Collection Overview

Scope and Content
This single item collection is a June 27, 1808, church memorandum. The document was written to the Mount Gilead Church morality committee. Elder John Price was brought up on moral charges by Carter Tarrant. Information had been given to Tarrant, by various church members in good standing, so Tarrant pressed charges against Price. When the case was to be heard by the committee, the members refused to testify so the matter was dropped. Tarrant felt compelled to issue this statement, clearly stating he did not believe the charges but felt compelled to press the matter because of the information given to him.
