How old was Lot Smith when he was asked to help keep the U. S. army out of Utah?
(C) Convinced those that had given up tobacco and tea to add this to the fund
Franklin D. Richards sent this letter to the Millennial Star: Although you have been informed, by my worthy Pastor, of the success that has attended the labours of the Elders in this Conference, still I feel to drop you a few lines.
My health is good and body strong. The harness fits as usual. The work is in a good, thriving condition. The Priesthood and members feel alive in “Mormonism,” and, from the oldest to the youngest, all feel Zionward, and are, at the present time, rejoicing in the anticipation of pulling or pushing a handcart to their home in the west. Tobacco smokers have resolved to quit, and put their savings thereby in the P.E. Fund, and those who have quit tea-drinking will also put their savings in the same. The Book Agency is growing better all the time.
