E. R. Snow said. How thankful we should be for the positions we are placed in. The Lord has placed our feet in a sure path, if we will only live our religion. I feel happy this afternoon to meet with my sisters of the 18th Ward. I have been absent for some time. The duties of Teachers are of great importance, they should try to comfort the hearts of those who are bowed down, not to gather donations, but to receive what the sisters feel to give, for the benefit of the poor. I pray God to bless all my sisters [. . .]

Benediction by Sister E R. Snow.
