June 4th 1878. In consequence of certain questions, propounded to me by Prest E. Snow, I resolved to keep a synopsis of my doings each day, commencing to day.
I worked in the Temple until 9 A.M. Attended County Court until 12 A.M. Met Prest E. Snow about 2 P.M, appointed a Meeting at 6 P.M.
Occupied the afternoon in the Office and at 6 P.M. was in Conference with Prest E. Snow, Judge Wm Snow and John M. Macfarlane.
Prest E. Snow stated that he wished to have a written statement of Judge Snow and myself as to all we know in relation to the commencement of, and proceedings in the Dunford Divorce suit, as to the Complicity of Bro W. Woodruff, Bro McAllister and others in the affair, the result of which was I made my statement of the matter, and Bro. Wm Snow and Bro J. M. Macfarlane theirs, which Prest. Now said he wished made in writing on the following day.
Went home at 10 P.M.
June 5th 1878. Worked In the Temple until until (sic) 1 P.M. Wrote the following statement in the afternoon.
Statement of Adolphus R. Whitehead Clerk of the Probate Court of Washington County made the 4th day of June 1878 in answer to questions propounded to him by Prest Erastus Snow, in relation to the Divorce Suit of Susan G, Dunford,
He says about the beginning of January 1878 as near as his memory serves him, Susan G. Dunford came to him and stated that she wished to obtain a Divorce from Alma (p.2) that she wished it done quietly and desired him not to say anything about it, he asked her if Bro woodruff was
St. George, 1878, June A. R. Whitehead, P. 2 (10)
acquainted with what she was doing? She answered that he was and that he had advised her to do it, or was willing she should, she also said something about having thought of getting the Divorce when she was in Salt Lake City, and had spoken to Prest Taylor about it, that Prest Taylor did not wish her to get it there. he thought she told him that Prest Taylor thought she had better wait until Bro Dunford came home, but was not certain. About the last
On the 5th of January
or there abouts lst of Feb at the a Stake Priesthood Meeting he
asked Bro Woodruff if he understood Susie was applying for a Divorce and wished
to know if it was right, says Bro Woodruff answered that he thought it was as
he understood that she and Alma had never been happy together since they were
married, said he bad wanted a Bill just before he went on his Mission, Bro
Woodruff said be had talked with the Judge in relation to the matter and that
he wished it done as still as possible.
On the lst day of February, Susie came and filed her complaint, stating to me that she did not wish to expose Almas faults too much, consequently she only complained of Incompatibility of Temper, I asked her if she wished to ask for the children and the property? she said the Property was all hers except a portion of the Furniture and the Organ and Almas Office Furniture and in her complaint asked for the Children (p.3) and the Household & Kitchen Furniture and the Organ, She wished to know if she could get the Divorce right away? I told her that service would have to be made on Bro Dunford either by publication in the News or by sending a Copy of the complaint and a Summons to him In England and if he would accept service, sign and return the summons. it would do,
St. George, 1878, June A. R. Whitehead, p. 3 (11)
but if he failed to do so, then it would still have to be published, she wished me to send the summons to him, which I did, and accompanying it a letter of explanation stating that we did not wish to take any advantage of his absense, that he could sign the summons accepting the service, if he felt to do so, and send the answer if he wished, or he could employ some one here to defend his suit or come himself and defend himself.
I received no answer from him, a few weeks afterwards Susie came to me, enquired if I had heard from Alma, stated she had learned that David Cannon had filed a lien on her House for a debt, chided me for not informing her of it, said she wanted to pay Bro Cannon and did not know how, without she could sell a piece of Property in Salt Lake City, wanted to know if Alma could do anything if she sold the Furniture, said it was her Furniture, that her Father had given her, I told her she had a right to sell anything that belonged to her, she said that every thing was hers but his Office Tools and Office Furrniture.
Some time about the last of March or the 1st of April she came and told me that Alma had arrived In Salt Lake City, (p.4) stated to me that she had sent the children out to Trumbull, I told her that it would have been better had she kept them at home, she said she was afraid he would come and take them away, I told her if she had kept them with her, she would be better able to watch them, that she could have obtained an Injunction if she found he was attempting to take the children before the decision of the Court was given.
A few days previous to Bro Dunfords arrival Prest McAllister asked me
St. George, 1878, June A. R. Whitehead, p. 4 (12)
in the Temple, if I had a visitor last evening I said "I had not" he said "Alma was coming home, that Susie was afraid to be alone and wished to go to some friends house to stop, and he said he referred her to me, I said I did not have any spare room and did not propose to mix up in the affair.
Susie came to me that same day and stated that Alma was coming, that she was afraid to be alone &c she asked my advice in relation to the suit about getting me or some one to conduct it for her. I told her I was the Clerk of the Court and did not wish to undertake anything of the kind, but told her that I would not get any one at present but wait and see what course Alma took after she had seen his Answer she could tell better what she would need, but when he arrived and filed his answer I advised her to obtain the services of Bro E. G. Woolley to assist her.
Bro Dunford arrived and after obtaining Councel, filed his Answer and the time being set for April 26th. Susie appeared with her Mother and three other Witnesses (p.5) but without any Councel, the Judge and also Bro J. M. Macfarlane the Lawyer for Alma, repeatedly tried to pursuade her to get some one to conduct the case for her, but she repeatedly refused, and not being acquainted with the usage of eliciting testimony, she would tell the Witnesses what to say and the defense of course objected for a time, and one unaccustomed to Courts would think she did not have a fair chance, but in my opinion as also the opinion of many others the Court and defense were very lenient with her The evidence adduced during the two days of the trial, in reality showed, no cause
St. George, 1878, June A. R. Whitehead, p. 5 (13)
for Action and were it not that the Defendant in his plea, admitted that now the parties could not live in peace together, in consequence of the course of Susie in commencing the suit, sending off the children, disposing.of the furniture &c, no Judge, judging from the evidence given in Court and the 14 of her own Letters to Alma since he departed for England, 13 of which were most affectionate and the 14th being the last, without showing any cause for the change, telling him of her intention to be divorced, and also a Farewell address composed by her upon the departure of Alma for Europe, could possible have granted the Decree of Divorce, had not the Defendant admitted as aforesaid. Previous to the trial, Susie came to me and said Alma wished an interview with her, said she did not wish to be alone with him, and wished me to be present, I rather
objected at the time, but
afterwards Alma came to be and wished me to try and arrange so that they could
have an Interview, he also wishing me to be present, I then went and saw Susie
and (p.6) the tine was appointed for 5 P.M.
I tried to find Alma to tell him of the time appointed, but could not,
and learned that he had gone with the Ward Teachers to see her, consequently I
did not go as I thought the Teachers were enough.
In the course of the Trial It was proved that the Teachers had effected a settlement between Susie and Alma in relation to the children and the division of the Property, providing Alma would pay Bro Cannons debt he went to ascertain if he could settle the debt, and when he went with the Teachers to close the agreement Susie backed out, and it was proved that Sister Lucy B. Young was the cause of her changing her mind, it was also proved that Lucy B, said to the teachers, that if she had been
St. George, 1878, June A. R. Whitehead, p. 6 (14)
there, she would have put them out of doors.
In the decision of the Judge, Alma was to have the Title to the House and Lot in Salt Late City. A few days after the decision (which by the way was put off two weeks to give the parties a chance to agree if they could themselves.) Alma came to me and stated that Susie said she was willing to sign the Deed, said he took the Deed for her to sign and she refused to talk to him, he wished me to take it and get her to sign it, when I went she refused to do so, Alma then filed an Affidavit for Attachment for Contempt, before having it served I wrote a Note to Susie, explaining what Alma was doing, in which I explained that it would put her to a good deal of expense and trouble and if she wished to prevent it she had better sign the Deed She came to my office, said she had come to sign it, I gave her the Deed (p.7) and she changed the Deed, making the Transfer to Alma as Guardian of the Children, I told her, that would not do, as it did not satisfy the Decree. She said she would not sign it any other way, said she would lay in prison until she rotted before she would sign it I told her I should have to telegraph to the Judge and serve the Attachment. The papers were served and on the day of trial, she appeared and remained in contempt of the Court the whole of the afternoon by signing the Deed but refusing to acknowledge it. Both the Judge and myself stated to her, that she could acknowledge that she done it in compliance with the Decree of the Court, but she would not, about dark the Judge committed her to the care of the Bailiff until she did acknowledge the signature, between Nine and ten Oclock after every- thing was arranged for her comfort for the night in an Office in the Court House and a Female Attendant with her she having refused to be kept
St. George, 1878, June A. R. Whitehead, P. 7 (15)
at her own home. Bro. Moses F. Farnsworth,
the chief a Clerk at the Temple came up
and saw her and she consented for Bro Lund a Notary Public to come in and she
made the acknowledgement, he using the same words in taking it the acknowledgement
as had been used previously used in the Court, by the Judge and Clerk and
she had refused to do it she was released after taking the acknowledgement. she was released immediately

Romney to the People showed very contrite spirit being full of grief and sorrow for what he had done, was willing to resign if the Priesthood thought it best, a vote was taken to forgive him but did not take well, the People signified that they would like him to be present himself, Prest McAllister spoke a few words, showing that other faults were as bad as getting drunk, named neglect of duty in non attendance at meeting as being as bad.
Went to dinner with Bro Solon Foster. Attended meeting in the afternoon. Bro Gates asked the privilege of talking, talked on general principles refered principally to Bro Romney, said he did not like to see such things covered up, he (Romney) had been borne with too long, said it seemed strange we could not have sober Bishops Prest said he did not know but he was too rough. Prest McAllister said yes, he thought Bro Gates might have consulted them (the Prest of the Stake) before talking on the matter in that way. he seemed terribly annoyed. Called on Bro Eyring to talk when Bro Gates was through.
Bro Eyring, said there was men in St. George who drank every day and could pack a gallon and not show it, that the one (p. 21) that gave drink to the one that got drunk was worse than he, that got drunk, St. George, 1878, August A. R. Whitehead, p. 22 (30)
said Bro Romneys positions in the Priesthood were not up for consideration there, that he thought Bro R. was sincere in his repentance &c. Prest McA. said he sanctioned all that had been said but thought it was untimely, that he (Bro Gates) should have waited until Bro R. was present.
After meeting quite a caucus gathered together and talked over the matter. Bro J.M. Macfarlane said he was perfectly willing to forgive Bro R. but he did not believe in covering such things up, and said that the matter had been misrepresented to the people.
Bro Eyring wished to know, "How"
Bro M. said he, Bro E. had misrepresented it by comparing Bro R. with a man that had had drink given to him, when it was the contrary with Bro R. as he persistently refuses to drink with any one, but deliberately takes his bottle to himself, gets drunk and trys to take the life of his Brethren. considerable was said by all parties. Bro Eyring stated that he did not mean it in that way. (but he certainly led the people to think that some one had given drink to Bro R. as stated by Bro J. M. Mac.)

My Dear Children
These few words your Father addresses to you, although insignificant now m[a]y perhaps at some future time be servicable to you. I am about being seperated from my Children perhaps for ever. You are leaving a father, who which circumstances have divided from you has endeavored to contribute to your support so far as he could, and when sorrow urges him to address some parting words to you, hoping that when seas divide us they may cause you some consolation in your distress or affliction in sorrow or trouble remember that although deprived of my advice and assistance you have a father whom no seas can seperate, one always present always ready to hear and to help.
Imperfect as I am my advice may be inconsistent with my actions, but nevertheless follow it as if it came from a better man. Make the New Testament your guide study the Character and laws of Jesus Christ pray to him to guide you and help you he will hear and grant his protection to his children in every affliction, God the universal Father who is every where present who now knows my desire to urge you to a full reliance upon his love as a source of strength and comfort to you when your earthly father, however loud your cry, cannot hear and help St. George, 1880, August & September A. R. Whitehead, p. 78 (84)
you. Remember my dear Children you are going to a Country where labor must be your resource for a livelihood. What your hands find to do, do it with all your heart. Do not forget your duty to your Mother. Assist her by your strength, and (p. 65) should sickness or poverty overtake her comfort and support her.
Be honest, let not shame depress you at meeting a Man you have wronged stand erect on the conviction of having acted right to your neighbor.
Be Sober, Oh my boys, if you knew which God grant the degredation the present helpless idiocy of a Man steeped in drink the unalterable agony of mind, the incessant gnawing of the worm, that never dies in a drunkards heart, you would avoid it whilst in your power, the fatal, facinating, fiendish cup.
I have little more to say. I hope I need not invite you to love and help each other. Brothers love and Cherish Sister Clara attend upon and bless help my thoughts my love will be with think sometimes of me and at every convenient opportunity write to me as I will to you should I be spared, should any change for the better occur in my fortune you all shall partake of it you are my children.
