Abstract:
Typescript copy of a signed and notarized account by William J. Cogswell of the journey from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City between August 20 and November 15, 1870, by members of an acting troupe including Cogswell, E. B. Marden, Jared Carter and his wife Carrie, their two children, and Gedion Carter under the "Spiritual Influence" they received through a planchette. Cogswell describes daily spiritual revelations, encounters with Indians, locations of their theatrical performances, and their meeting with, and baptism by, Brigham Young. He concludes the account by listing reasons to support his theory that Young was a Spiritualist.
