I sent one letter to Elder Dan Jones containing the first copies of the Proclamation of the Twelve Apos-ties. I ordered Twenty thousand to be printed in English. The first Copy came to me to day which I immediately sent to Capt Dan Jones to be published in the welch language.
This is the proclamation to All the Kings of World & rulers & people of All nations. May the Lord make it a blessings to All nations. This Proclamation is made by the Twelve Apostles in fulfillment of the Revelations & Commandments of God. ... This is A warning to the whole gentile world that they may be left without excuse in the day of Gods Judgment upon the nations. I thank God that I am an instrument in his hands of printing & Circulating this important Proclamation through Britain & Europe.
