[. . .] Sister Eliza R. Snow Smith occupied a short time. Said Latter-day Saints ought never to look sad; that God would overrule everything that is not for our good, for He loves every one of us. Spoke of the weaknesses we all have to overcome in ourselves, and the progress we must make; that there was no standing still in this kingdom, but going onward; God will have a tried people, and those that are of pure minds and contrite hearts. Sister Eliza made mention of the family of Bro. Jacob Hamblin, who died lately, and thought it would be well for the sisters to give a trifle to help them.
