Sister Elizah Snow next made a few remarks telling the children they had made some progress since her last visit— If the children wanted to live they should live to do good— Wished to see the boys grow up to be good and noble men, <and> always speak the truth. Spoke to the Secretaries—could realize what a responsibility it was but if it was worth doing it should be done properly.

Was very proud of the good order, prayed [p. 65] that the children would have the best conference they had ever had.— Told the children her age and thanked God for preserving her life—wanted to continue doing good as long as God wished her to live and if the children wished to live a long time always try to do right <and> please God in all things.

[. . .] [p. 66] [. . .] Sister Elizah R. Snow said she had only one thing to regret and that there were not more larger boys on the program—hoped next time more boys would speak— Desired the girls to become good mothers.
