[Brigham Young]

A revelation was read which was the first one that has been penned since Joseph was killed. The Lord has given it through the President for the good of this people as they are traveling to the west. President Young said the difference between a revelation of God, and a revelation of man and a revelation of the devil is this, in the one of the devil you will always see some great and dark thing which you cannot understand, and in a revelation of man you will always see the man sticking out in it, but one that cometh from God is always plain and suited to the present condition of the people'
