[Wilford Woodruff]

I gave seconed Anointing to Mahonri Coriantimur Steel and wife. ...

I had a Conversation with Henry W Miller who says he was present when Joseph Smith the prophet deposited the Original Manuscript of the Book of Mormon. It was deposited in the South East Cornor of the Lot. When He deposited it He said sumthing like this. I deposit this Manuscript in the name of the Lord for I have had much trouble about it Since it has been in my hands. But I now Commit it into thy hands O God for safe keeping untill the Coming of the Son of Man. Then this with all other Records will be brought forth by the Lord. At the End of the Thousand years rest Satan will be let loose for a little season which I expet will be One thousand years. Then He will use his last power on the Earth and He will seek to destroy all the word of God out of the Earth and the Lord would have to protect it.
