165 years ago today - Aug 23, 1857

[A speaker] Was followed By President Heber C Kimball who was filled with the power of God. ... If the people will do as they are told they shall never be driven from these vallies. An Enemy shall not Come in these vallies for we will not let them. If we have to take to our tents at all we will not pitch them again as a resting place untill we Pitch them in Jackson County. He said that Presidet Young said when He first Came in in a speech that we should lay up grain for a 7 years famine & we should let the land rest on the 7th year. Brother Woodruff herd it. (Brother Woodruff said it was written.)

Now the US are trying to force a Govornor upon us. We will not Receive him. The Lord has said our govornor will procede out of the midst of us. This is in the Bible.
