155 years ago today - 1867 January 1

[Wilford Woodruff]

Jan 1 The year 1867 is before us. Every year grows more and more important in the great Events of the Last days as we Approach nearer and nearer the Coming of the Son of Man. The Events of the last days will be awful for the wicked, and Blessed for the righteous. The Lord hath Commenced a controversy with the Nations and he will never Cease untill that Consumption decreed will be fulfilled upon all the wicked. What 1867 will bring to pass time must determine. It will hasten the downfall of our Nation, and Bring distress upon other Nations....

We then went to the Endowments House. The Presidency & 8 of the Twelve were present. {George Quail Cannon & 3 wives} obtained their second Anointing Presidet Young being mouth. I spent the Evening at home.
