Sister E R. Snow

Felt well in meeting with the young People of Malad. She said the young folks all over the Territory were going into Infidelity and Atheism and the Young Laddies [Ladies] into vanity. before the Organization of the young People into Improvemt Societies was revealed by God but now they are begin[n]ing to regain their senses. hoped they would continue to improve and attend to their meetings and apply their minds to acquiring knowledge. and never shirk a duty if we would do this it is a key to knoweledge.
