[Brigham Young]

Said his faith was that the earth would not have produced for the Gentiles as it has for us, and if we had faith and power with God to have the curse taken off instead of the sage brush and other useless shrubs, we should have the apple pear peach grape and every good fruit. But if this people do not take a different course from what they do in some things, their blessings will prove a curse and wo will be unto them. -- Manti, Utah
