[Wilford Woodruff Journal] 25 O Lord give me faith, grace, & Patience to endure what is lade up me without murinering or Complaining. ... The report that I spoke of yesterday concerning the Mormon's in Mo as the Saints are Called, is going the rounds to day among our friends & neighbours. This one is saying it wont do to go & that is saying it will not do to go for you will be killed &c. But O, fools, slow at heart to believe that God is as able to protect his Saints in these last days from the hands of the gentiles as HE was anciently to deliver Israel from the Egyptians. ...
