[Brigham Young]

The President believes and practiced the taking of medicine, and it is better to gather up a little catnip and make tea of it than to ask the Lord to send an Angel to cure us when we can do so much ourselves nevertheless he believed in the ordinances to be used with mild herbs according to the revelation given upon that subject.
