[Wilford Woodruff]

The Twelve held a Meeting in the Evening at 6 oclok. W Woodruff spoke his feelings. O. Hyde spoke his feelings & said Presidet Young told me in 1850 that my views on the Baby resurrection was not true, that I might Believe what I pleased if I would not Preach fals doctrin. But I am ready to follow in the beaten tract. Brother Young said no man Could know much about the resurrection untill he passed through the resurrection & had the keys of it. For that reason I have been silent upon the subjet & I have not heard any of the Twelve preach upon it that I recollect. I have not Contemplated for years the resurrection in any other light than you do. The subject has died within me years ago."

Social Conversation ensued upon this Subject even the Godhead. O Pratt said that He did not worship Atributes asside from the Personage of God But Believed that God was an organized Being the same as Man & that Man possessed the Atributes of God & would become a God if he kept the Celestial Law.
