Since I met with you Sisters, I have met with a great many, and we have it for our comfort that there are a great many sisters who are trying to do as we do; the sisters are doing a great deal of good; had visited the primary association in the differant settlements and had visited the sick and administered to them, spoke of the blessings we enjoy, in having good health by which we are enabled to meet together, and enjoy each others society, and look forward to the time when we shall have bodies that won[’]t be subject to pain and suffering.
