[A speaker] Was followed By President Heber C Kimball who was filled with the power of God. ... If the people will do as they are told they shall never be driven from these vallies. An Enemy shall not Come in these vallies for we will not let them. If we have to take to our tents at all we will not pitch them again as a resting place untill we Pitch them in Jackson County. He said that Presidet Young said when He first Came in in a speech that we should lay up grain for a 7 years famine & we should let the land rest on the 7th year. Brother Woodruff herd it. (Brother Woodruff said it was written.)

Now the US are trying to force a Govornor upon us. We will not Receive him. The Lord has said our govornor will procede out of the midst of us. This is in the Bible.

  1. Jeremiah 30:

    [21] And their nobles shall be of themselves, AND THEIR GOVERNOR SHALL PROCEED FROM THE MIDST OF THEM; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.

    [22] And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

    [23] Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.

    [24] The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.
