Lorenzo Snow, 1873-74

-- During 1873-74
[United Order] Observing poverty, dispiritedness and disaffection as he traveled south to his winter home in St George during the winter of 1873-74, the aging Mormon leader considered how best to control the situation. The previous October Lorenzo Snow, apostle and founder of the Brigham City Cooperatives, had preached a sermon which perhaps was still ringing in Young's ears: "It is more than forty years since the Order of Enoch was introduced, and rejected. One would naturally think, that it is now about time to begin to honor it." (1)
