Apostle Wilford Woodruff gives first reading of dedicatory prayer for Utah's first temple (at St. George), and temple ordinances begin. He prays that Brigham Young will live to see the United States "broken in pieces like a potter's vessel and swept from off the face of the Earth" because this nation "shed the Blood of Prophets and Saints which cry unto God day and night for vengence."
