... s/t/aid all night with a Brother McBride. [The] next morning [we] went 4 m[iles] to Br[other Freeman] Nicisons [Nickerson's], found him and his house hold full of faith and of the Holy Spirit.

We cal[le]d the Church together and Related unto them what had hap[p]ened to our Brethren in Zion. [We] opened to them the prophesyes and revelations concerning the order of the gathering of Zion and the means of her Redem[p]tion.

Brother Joseph Prophesyed to them and the spirit of the Lord came mightily upon them and with all re[a]dyness the yo[u]ng and mid[d]le aged volenteered for Zion['s Camp]. [The] same evening [we] held 2 meetings 3 or 4 miles Apart.

[The] next day, March 6th, [we] held another Meeting at Bro[ther] Nicisons [Nickerson's]. The few un Believers that attended were outragious and the meeting ended in compleet confusion.
