[Brigham Young]
A poor man Came into my Office. I felt by the spirit that He needed five dollars in money. I took it out of my pocket and gave it to him. I soon after found a five dollar gold peace in my pocket which I did not put there. I soon found another. This was put in my pocket by the Lord or some agent. Many think that the Lord has nothing to do with gold but he has charge of that as well as any other Element. -- Salt Lake City
