[Joseph Smith]

This day Elder Orson Hyde and Heber C. Kimball Preached. They have just returned from England from a mission of som[e]thing over a year's duration. They bring glad tidings of great joy from that people. They baptised between one and two thousand and left Greater prospects than they had ever before seen. ...

Kirtland has been broken up by those who have professed the name of Latter Day Saints and have denied the faith which they once preached and by their preaching gathered many Saints into this land, and now have betrayed them. O Justice where hast thou fled And thou administrations whither hast thou concealed thyself.
