I wish to say a word about Amasa Lyman & tell why he is droped from the Twelve. It is because of his infidelity. He has no faith in the Attonement, & another reason is he has lied in his Confession. He has Preached infidelity for many years to the people, but not to the Presidency & Twelve.
Orson Pratt does not believe in a God ownly in Atributes but not in a personage. He would have been Cut off from the Church long ago had it not have been for me. The Twelve would have Cut him off.
