Of course we had no telegraphs and no fast reports as we have today to give communication over the land. Dur- ing that period Brother Young was wait- ing there for a train of cars to go to Peterborough. Whilst sitting there we were overshadowed by a cloud of dark- ness and gloom as great as I ever wit- nessed in my life under almost any cir- cumstances in which we were placed. Neither of us ...

I have sealed upon your heads all the keys of the Kingdom of God. I have sealed upon you every key, power, principle that the God of heaven has revealed to me or sealed upon me. Now, no matter where I may go or what I may do, the Kingdom rests upon you." Now don't you wonder ...

For if we had before us every revelation which God ever gave to man; if we had the Book of Enoch; if we had the untrans- lated plates before us in the English language; if we had the records of the Revelator St. John which are sealed up, and all other revelations, and they were piled up here a hundred feet high, the Church and kingdom of God could not grow, in this or any other age of ...
