Excerpt from The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 23: Organ for Young Latter-Day Saints; December 15, 1888
I noticed that the aged women and those who carried child ren were seated, and that the boys, girls and men', both old and young, either stood up or seated themselves on the wall.
We had a matting spread for us, and took our places near the judge, who was an exceedingly handsome and venerable looking Raj poet of the purest type, dressed in pure white ﬂow ing robes, his white beard falling over his breast, a white tur ban ou his head, beneath which his kindly eyes looked so tender and sympathetic that it seemed impossible he could have the moral courage to condemn any one to death.
At the hour appointed, a small door at the extreme end of the hall opened, and the prisoner was led in by two tall Raj poot soldiers in full armor, with sword and shield, and bows and arrows.
