President Young spoke 25 minutes. He said all the affliction upon this People will be for our Good. I do not think we should have been visited with grasshoppers if the people had harkened to Council in laying up their Grain. ... What is a kingdom? A King People & Territory. Without these things there Can be No kingdom.
