He was led to pray upon the subject in consequence of the declaration of the Apostle James: &amp;#39;If any of you lack Wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not.&amp;#39; He sought the Lord by day and by night, and was enlightened by the vision of an holy angel. When this personage appeared to him, one of his first inquiries was, &amp;#39;Which of the denominations of Christians in the vicinity was right?&amp;#39; He was told they had all gone astray, they had wandered into darkness, and that God was about to restore the Gospel in its simplicity and purity to the earth; he was, consequently, directed not to join any one of them, but to be humble and seek the Lord with all his heart, and that

  48. &lt;br&gt;Sister Ellis L. Musser called and made an appeal to me to allow her to go to the temple to witness the marriage of her daughter. I told her I could not think of such a thing as overriding any decision that was made by the bishop and the president of her stake in regard to giving temple recommends. Unless the local authorities recommend people I would not think of doing such a thing. I feel very sorry for Sister Musser. I am sure she is in sympathy with her husband who took another wife after the declaration of President Smith, and he was excommunicated from the Church. In my heart of hearts I cannot help feeling that any woman who is in sympathy with a husband that has been excommunicated ought not to be recommended to the temple but I did not care to tell her as I did not wish to hurt her feelings.

  56. &lt;br&gt;At noon met with the Apostles in the Historian&amp;#39;s office and listened to the testimony of Lorenzo Dow Hickey, one of the followers of Jas. [James] J. Strang and an apostle in the Strangite Church. He presented to us a book which he called &amp;quot;Book of the Law of the Lord.&amp;quot; He claimed that this would have to be accepted by us and also the Josephites. I never listened to a more absurd recital in all my life that to the position that he took. He claimed that Jas. J. Strang was the true and lawful successor of the Prophet Joseph Smith and that he had called and tried to get Jos .Smith the son of the Prophet to allow him, Strang, to anoint him as the Prophet and leader of the Church and young Joseph had declined to let him do so, and that Strang had got into his house and anointed him the Patriarch of the Church and that today young Joseph was the right head od the Church. When asked whey he did now follow Joseph he said that he rejected him and his works but acknowledged his authority. Bro.

Joseph orders General Dunham to put guards completely around the city and on all roads leading out of town. All powder and lead are readied for use by the legion. Joseph estimates that there are approximately 600 men surrounding Nauvoo at this time.

  72. &lt;br&gt;
  73. &lt;br&gt;&amp;quot;This night we camped on an elevated piece of land between two branches of the Fishing River. Just as we halted and were making preparations for the night, five men rode into the camp and told us we should see h&amp;mdash;I before morning, and such horrible oaths as came from their lips I never heard before. They told us that sixty men were coming from Richmond who had sworn to destroy us; also seventy more were coming from Clay County, to assist in our destruction. These men were black with passion and armed with guns, and the whole country was in a rage against us, and nothing but the power of God could save us. All this time the weather was fine and pleasant. Soon after these men left us we discovered a small black cloud rising in the west, and not more than twenty minutes passed away before it began to rain and hail, but we had very little of the hail in our camp; all around us the hail was heavy. The thunders rolled with awful majesty, and the red lightnings flashed through the
  74. &lt;br&gt;horizon, making it so light that I could see to pick up a pin almost at any time through the night; the earth quaked and trembled, there being no cessation; it seemed as though the Almighty had issued forth his mandate of vengeance. The wind was terrible. Many trees were blown down, and others twisted and wrung like a withe. The mob came to the river two miles from us, but the river had risen to that height that they were obliged to stop without crossing over. The hail fell so heavy upon them that it beat holes in their hats, and in some instances even broke the stocks off their guns. Their horses fled, leaving their riders on the ground; their powder was wet, and it was evident the Almighty fought in our defense; This night the river raised forty feet. In the morning I went to the river, in company with Brothers Joseph Smith, Hyrum Smith, and Brigham Young and others, as we had it in contemplation to proceed that morning to Liberty, Clay County; but we could not continue our
  75. &lt;br&gt;journey as there was no way to cross the river, it was then overflowing its banks; previous to this rain falling it was no more than ankle deep; such a time was never experienced by us before. Still we felt calm all night and the Lord was with us. The water was ankle deep to us all night, even on that eminence, so we could not sleep. * * *

Smith, visit a grove near the Smith family home in Manchester and have an experience described in a later &amp;quot;Testimony of Eight Witnesses&amp;quot; published as part of the 1830 Book of Mormon. The statement says, with regard to the golden plates, that they &amp;quot;did handle with our hands and we also saw the engravings thereon, all of which has the appearance of ancient work and of curious workmanship.&amp;quot; There are differing opinions on whether the witnesses believe they had seen the plates in vision, or with their natural eyes. Lucy Mack Smith says that the plates had been carried by this grove by &amp;quot;one of the ancient Nephites.&amp;quot; The June 19 date is suggested because Lucy Mack Smith said the event occurred on a Thursday, and  that the following Monday, the company went to visit E.B. Grandin to see if he will publish the Book of Mormon.

  81. &lt;br&gt;[At Temple Council meeting] Since  Elder Marion G. Romney is leaving soon to tour the European Missions, he inquired regarding the counsel he should give to the Saints in Europe regarding their emigrating to this country so I gave the following instructions to him: There is no command regarding this matter, but we wish the people to build up the branches where they live so that those who never can get away from those countries over there will be built up spiritually, and receive their temple endowments and all blessings they could obtain if they were to come here. . . .  The same condition exists in South Africa where an entire generation of men and women had never even seen a member of the Council of the Twelve.  I think we should have a temple there some day.  It is a long way for these people  to go to a temple and the distances are great in that country and under present conditions they are obliged to live and die without having the blessings of the Temple and realize the

Donald McGregor, who had entered into an unlawful and unauthorized marriage. As he answered every question without hesitation, and as they felt he had been sincerely misled, they did not feel like excommunicating him, but disfellowshipped him; also for the further reason that he had entered into this marriage before any who had done likewise had been dealt with on their standing in the Church. the Twelve also met on Wednesday to further consider the case of [Apostle] M[atthias]. F. Cowley, in view of recent reports about him. After due consideration the Council decided that no further action could be taken in his case.

  88. &lt;br&gt;I have received your letter of the 11th inst., in which you speak of another ordinance in addition to the second anointing, which might be given at some future time in an upper room. You have received all the ordinances which we administer. The ordinance to which you refer is one between yourself and your family, and which doubtless was explained to you when you received your second anointing. Your wife who is dead, and who, you say, was a faithful woman, can receive her second anointing. One of your other wives can act for her. Those who died out of the Church, and who have been sealed to you since, need not at the present time receive this ordinance. We do not administer it to those who are in this condition. As to the ordinance connected with the rod, we know nothing of that. You will have to wait for awhile or until we meet Aaron. Of course, your present living wives, if they are worthy and can obtain recommendations from the Bishop, can receive the ordinance of second
  89. &lt;br&gt;anointing, whenever it will be convenient to you and to them.

  93. &lt;br&gt;.... Applications are, as you are aware, being constantly made for the privilege of having women sealed to their husbands who have heretofore been sealed to other men who were not their husbands. Similar applications are being made in the cases of sealing children to parents who have heretofore been sealed to men who were not their natural fathers. I have been unofficially informed that when such cases are pla[i]n, and when the applications are in harmony with the teachings given at the last April Conference, the rule in the Temple should be to proceed without application to President [Wilford] Woodruff. If this be the decision of the First Presidency, I would be obliged if I could be so informed officially by the placing of a plain &amp;quot;yes&amp;quot; or &amp;quot;no&amp;quot; upon this sheet. [Written in pencil:] yes, W[ilford] Woodruff
