[Wilford Woodruff]

Elder O Hyde spoke. Then I followed & the spirit & power of God rested upon me like a Burning flame & so it did upon Brother Snow & Brother Richards as they spoke & we all advised the first Presidents of the Seventies to go forward & present a resignation of their Presidency to President Young & let some men take the place who could magnify it. Hancock & Z Pulsipher said they would & B L Clapp spoke. We had the Spirit & power of God rest upon us like fire shut up in our bones & revealed many things unto us.

I went home & I did not feel like going to bed. I felt as though I wanted to set up & pray all night.
