Sister H. [Hannah] W. Rees, of Wales, Sanpete County, writes that, on the 22nd inst., Sisters Eliza R. Snow and Zina D. Young, from this city, Sisters Gouldsbrough [Amelia H. Goldsbrough] of Nephi, and M. A. [Mary Ann] Hyde, of Spring City, met and held meeting with the Sisters of the first named place, at the residence of bishop John E. Rees. Sister Snow made some very interesting and instructive remarks, on the duties of the Saints, exhorting them to faithfulness, and counseling them to heed the warnings of prophecy; to store up grain against a day of need, to uphold and institute home manufactures, to raise silk, make clothing, etc., and in every way build up the kingdom of God, temporally as well as spiritually. [. . .] [p. 12]
