[First Presidency]

The Bishops, in each Ward throughout the Territory, are requested to see to it that every grain raiser permits the poor to glean his fields, unless he prefers to glean them himself immediately after the grain is bound; and if any one will not seasonably and properly glean his fields, nor permit the poor to do so, let his Bishop deal with him according to the law of Zion. BRIGHAM YOUNG, HEBER C. KIMBALL, JEDEDIAH M. GRANT.

[Deseret Nnews 6:125 (June 25, 1856), in Clark, James R., Messages of the First Presidency (6 volumes)]
