[Brigham Young]

(Bro. John Louring Nielson who has found a seer stone called in and reported he had discovered coal about 10 miles from here, was using a pump to draw off the water; he said he had seen gold in the stone.) The President said to him if you can find gold use it to bring out the poor saints from England, and then perhaps you might find more; The President observed there are but few men who are wise enough to have a stone just yet. Nielson further said he had seen in his stone many seer stones on the Bank of Missouri, and he would submit himself to counsel all the time as he only wanted to do good. -- Salt Lake City
