[John Henry Smith]
The question of missionary labor among the Indians was talked over and a vote taken that we would Educate some young Indians and then send them among their tribes to preach. We also decided to select some white men to take charge of Indian matters. We also decided to make a settlement somewhere in old Mexico.
