The following from the autobiography of George Laub:
So I heard Brother Snow, Brother Deem, and Brother Downing. I then commenced searching the scriptures and found the same as I had heard from them. I then prayed that I might understand the truth. I prayed often and my memory was strengthened and I had my understanding opened to the truth but dare not leave. My old parents know of the mind that was in me for they were against the Latter-day Saints. But I oft times would go to see them and ask of them for knowledge and I would read the scripture till nine and ten o'clock at night and rise in the morning at three and four (for I was at home then). They then told me they thought I was getting to be crazy but I knew how crazy I was, for I heard truth and I was crazy for more. I then was able to advocate the cause fully. So then I forsook the Methodist and my good name and went forth and I was baptized by James Downing. I rejoiced greatly.
