Pres. Louie [Louise B.] Felt said we have got vistors here today and Sister Snow says that she would like to hear you children speak a few words. I wish you would occupy a little time.

Sister Snow said it is a very bad symptom to be dissobedient I am delighted to see how well you carry out your exercises. I am glad to see so many here to day. you come here to worship God. There is nothing that makes us so happy as to have the spirit of God heaving in our bosom.

I think the essays were very good. It will be harder to to learn to command your thoughts when you are old than it is now. You should improve the privelege of speaking always. If you keep on in the good work you have commenced you will be good speakers. you should always attend to your prayers. She then related the story of Danniel. You should always be punctual. I feel to bless you in your good work The Lord will bless you if you try to do right.
