[Alexander Badlam] Brought $2,000 dollars worth of gold dust And He brought me A present of 9 1/2 oz. of gold dust as A present from several Brethren in the mines. And this begins to fulfill A portion of my Patriarchal Blessings which I recieved under the Hands of Father Joseph Smith in AD 1837. He said I should have access to the treasures hid in the sand to assist me in my necessities & in gathering many orphan Children to Zion. And it is begining to Come to pass.
