[Brigham Young]

He said should the people follow a Bishop? Yes if he is a righteous man & does right but if he teaches wrong things & does wrong the people should not follow Him. But when this is the Case let the people thunder out the truth as it is. Then the bishop will see it. But unless the people Can point some better way let them follow the bishop.
