[Wilford Woodruff Journal] ...We had a Comfortable room at the Inn by ourselves for the night & while sitting by the fireside Sister Lydia Luce a faithful Saint & full of faith related a dream that she had on the night of the 19th. The dream was of consequence & full of meaning. It was as follows:
She saw the moon in the North of a silver Colour. She saw a small sun in the south & while looking at the strange appearance of the heavens there appeared a ring of Blood in the west & there soon appeared several other rings of Blood of a larger size all encircling each other being a ring in a ring & there soon appeared a ladder of fire in the heavens & it fell to the earth & broke in two pieces. One part of the ladder had an Iron plate fassened to the end of it with sumthing fassened to it & I Willford Woodruff went & picked it up & read it & behold it contained the XV Chapter of Isaiah. Read the chapter for yourselves & learn wisdom. (1)
