[Wilford Woodruff]

L Snow moved that President Kimball should give us an address. President Kimball said I do not feel much like speaking to day. I feel feeble in body, & want my Liberty to act as I am moved by the Holy Ghost. But He began to talk & the power of God Came upon him & he spoke for an hour. I followed him & the room was filled as with Consumeing fire & all the member of the House Came in & they all spoke untill sundown & the House was filled with the spirit of God almost to the Consuming of our flesh & many things were revealed which were marvelous.

I attended the Bishops meeting in the evening. Bishop Hunter O Hyde W. Woodruff L. Snow & F D Richards & the fire of God still burned in us & many things were said. I never spent such a day & night in Israel.
