165 years ago today - May 6, 1854

[Brigham Young]
If the Lord should open the visions of the minds of the people that have gone to Calafornia so that they could see things as they are they would as soon cut their throats as to have done it but they dont see it. ...

We are approaching very swiftly the time when Jesus will come to see if we are of one heart & mind which the Prophet Joseph said would be in this generation & will manifest himself to the Saints & take up his abode with him. This was said 2 [.] years ago & in 26 years more if we are not prepared to meet Jesus [-] angels we shall be wiped out & sent to hell. We are fast approaching the time.

... What if the people in Jackson Co. had been good & been sanctified? What would have been the situation of the people? Why, the liars & goats would have had their heads cut off....
