Special conference assembled, at the Presidents office... voted unanimously that Amos Fuller take a mission to the city of Chicago.'& that Henry Jacobs [Husband of Zina Jacobs who married to Joseph Smith nine months earlier] accompany Bro Fuller. ...

Moved /by the President/ that all those who are in favor of assisting Bro Robinson in printing the Book of Mormon & the other Books, and backing up the concern, manifest it by the usual sign. Not a hand raised, but every hand was raised in the negative.
