At evening conference of elders, ... Over a hundred missionaries are given assignments. General conference of elders in Kirtland appoints Joseph and Sidney to visit Far West and locate gathering places "for a refuge and safety, in the day of the wrath of God which is soon to burst upon the head of this generation, according to the testimony of the prophets; who speak expressly concerning the last days."
