[. . .] Counselor E. R. Snow in her remarks alluded to the promises made to the House of Israel, and referred to the map of the promised land as given by Ezekiel the Prophet; also made some interesting remarks about the Woman’s Store, and the great interest she had in the success of the efforts made to establish home manufacture. She also spoke earnestly upon the remonstrance of the women of Utah in circulation, against the bills now in Congress, which are calculated to deprive us of rights and privileges of citizenship in almost every respect, politically, socially and religiously. [. . .] [p. 122]
