Brigham Young relates a dream to the "brethren of the Twelve" of meeting Joseph Smith (dead over a year and a half). "He looked perfectly natural, sitting with his feet on the lower round of his chair. I took hold of his right hand and kissed him many times, and said to him: 'Why is it that we cannot be together as we used to be. You have been from us a long time, and we want your society and I do not like to be separated from you.' Joseph rising from his chair and looking at me with his usual, earnest expressive and pleasing countenance replied, 'It is all right.' I said, 'I do not like to ba away from you.' Joseph Said, 'it is all right; we cannot be together yet; we shal be by and by; but you will have to do without me a while, and then we shall be together again.'" (2)
