Bro. Brigham then spoke and showed that none of us, not even He, had as yet learned the first principles of the Gospel. Explained the passages of scripture where Christ says, other sheep I have which are not of this fold, explained it thus: other sheep I have which are not of this fold. Also where it reads Ephraim shall become a multitude of nations was wrong, ought to be, Ephraim is in the midst of a multitude of nations. Said the Anglo Saxon Race were the pure Ephraimites and they might kick and flounce like the Wild Bull in the net, but the Lord would cuff [them] from one side to the other and chasten them and finally gather them out, for they were of the seed of Abraham. Touched on the Celestial law. -- SLC Tabernacle
