Compared our present status by the revealed word. Showing the varied Ideas entertained by various elders in regard to our preperation to prior to our return to Jackson Co. Mo. Refered to the covetiousness of the Sts that were required to purchase the Lands of Jackson Co.&showed the mercy of the Lord to them by giving them rev. upon rev. Refered to the building the Curtland [Kirtland] Temple&the visits of Jesus &holy angels to the Elders there.

Spoke of the implorations of Joseph to the Sts to lay hold of the united Order & consecration & observing the Laws of God read again Book Co v. The Sts should exhibit a willingness that that which they possess belongs to God. God made these Laws & we should not ignore it. It is our duties to act upon the spirit and principles of these Laws if we cannot consecrate to the church.

Do not allow the Spirit of covetiusness to enter our hearts. Felt that the Sts were doing an important work. If were let to run we would be as they are in Eng. Implored the Lord to bless the Sts that they may be prepared to go back & build up the center Stake of Zion. (3)
