[. . .] Singing O my father. There was presant on the stand, Sisters, E. R. Snow M. I. Horn [Mary Isabella Horne] & S. [Serepta] M. Heywood from Salt Lake City [. . .]

Sister Eliza R. Snow said that early in the church, in the days of the prophet Joseph Smith, children held meetings and then they had faith in God. Since then children had been neglected. She then asked who was the first prophet of the last days? Children answered, Joseph Smith. She then said yes, and I want to tell you something to remmember. Joseph Smith was the only man that has [p. 1] been so much honored as to have God, the father, and Jesus, the son, appear to them at the same time.

[. . .]

[. . .] Sister Snow requested the children to always respond to an invitation to speak in their meetings. [. . .] [p. 2]
