Presidet Young said as the Lamanites are Hosstile let us Exercise faith about them & learn what the will of the Lord is. At the Close of the prayers President Young said let us send out interpeters to them, make them presents & tell them they must stop fighting. It is Better to give them five thousand dollars than to have to fight them & kill them off for they are of the House of Israel.
