[Brigham Young]

It is all folly to suppose that there are Jews in this Church; they will be believe the gospel at present; they are in the same position as the Cainites are, they cannot come in until the rest of the family come in and receive their blessings, then they can have an opportunity. Let us not trouble about our trials, but be determined to overcome them. Counseled the brethren to look at their blessings, and not occupy all their time in looking at their troubles and trials. He had been in the habit of using tobacco, but he had left it off; he did not drink whisky, brandy, rum, wine, tea nor coffee, and he felt so much better for his abstemiousness that he would recommend others to follow his example. -- SLC Bowery
