[Brigham Young]

... on the resurrection Jesus raised before he saw corruption ... you know Mary run to the sepulcher just as a woman ought to - she saw a man in the garden, she ran along and found that an angel who holds the keys of the resurrection, who has received his body ... Mary knew his voice - she fell right down at this feet - every woman will come right to her husband's feet same as Mary

... I realize my enjoyments today - my soul is happy and can cry aloud - and shout Hallelujah the privilege of seeing the people of God - it fills be with fire - and my soul with consolation - this is the best day I have seen in my life - this is a heavenly day - a day of Zion - the air is impregnated with peace - and feel as ready to go to heaven if I am wanted - I am at peace with all heaven, all earth, and all hell if they will keep out of my road - but if they wont I have waged war with them right strait
