“I Take Up My Pen”: Mid-Summer Carnival, 1896

By: Ardis E. Parshall - March 03, 2014

This didn’t post this morning when I programmed it, durnit.

This letter came as an invitation to Wilford Woodruff to give the opening prayer at the celebration.





  1. “Mid-Summer Carnival” sounds politically correct. Like “winter solstice festival” at Christmas. Why isn’t it Independence Day?

  2. I think the picture of that flag says “Independence” more than anything lettering could.

  3. Our friend Jacob Moritz makes an appearance! The only other name I recognize is J.Q.Cannon, editor of the Deseret News and member of the Presiding Bishopric.
