Apostle Taylor moved that we recommend to the Presidency that a mission be established in South America. Carried by unanimous vote. As to planting a colony that matter would be determined by events following the establishment of a mission, which was of the first importance.

Some discussion was indulged in with reference to the necessity of providing some means, by the building of a temple or otherwise, for giving the blessings of the house of the Lord—at least in part—to the saints who live in the far distant Sandwich Islands [Hawaii], Mexico, and other places from which our people do not emigrate to Zion.
