[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 15th Sunday Many of the Lamanites were present. President Brigham Young Preached upon the subject of the Lamanites in an interesting manner. He told the Latter day Saints plain their duty towards them. An Indian Chief Called High forehead followed him & spoke in a vary interesting manner. He was followed by G. A. Smith & Aaron Johnson.
In the afternoon the people were addressed by O. Pratt while the sacrament was administering & followed by W. Woodruff.
At the close of the meeting President Snow nominated his two Councellors. Diminicus Carter was first Councellor. The people did not all vote. Two voted against him.
Their is a strange spirit in provo. Many do not pray & have not the spirit of God. In the Commencemet of the meeting it was very hard work to preach. The people seemed Cold & indifferent & it seemed as though they expected the Presidency & 12 to bring Oil enough in their lamps to fill all the lamps of 3,000 people & have light enough for them all without their bringing any themselves.
J. V. Long reported all the sermons & doings so I did not report any thing. We had a good meeting.
The President Preached strong doctrin. He told us our duty to the Lamanites & the Consequences that would follow if we did not do it. He warned us against neglecting that people, & neglecting prayer, & against our opposing any commandment, revelation, or doctrin that comes from God. O that we might be wise & listen to the things of God for we shall inherit the kingdom of God with all its blessings if we do & sorrow morning & wo if we do not.
At the close of the meeting we rode to Lake City & held a meeting. J. M. Grant Preached. Was followed by Brother Clements. I spent the night with Brother Clements. 12 mils. (1)
