MORMONISM.
YOUNG, BRIGHAM. 1801-1877. Letter Signed ("Brigham Young"), to W. W. Hoppin, Governor of Rhode Island, thanking him for sending two copies of Acts and Resolves of the General Assembly of the State of Rhode Island, 1 p, 4to (250 x 200 mm), Great Salt Lake City, June 1, 1855, in secretarial hand on blue paper, with original mailing envelope and paper folder marked "Brigham Young, Mormon Gov. of Utah."

As President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Young was the de-facto leader of settlers in the Utah Territory, and the logical choice as first Governor of the territory. He was appointed to that position by President Millard Fillmore in 1851, and served as Governor until 1858, when he was replaced by Alfred Cumming in the wake of the Utah War. William W. Hoppin served three successive one-year terms as Governor of Rhode Island, from 1854 to 1857.
