On the Queen Victoria of England was married to Prince Albert. As many on this day were celebrating the marriage of the Queen I thought it right to honor the king of heaven by advocating his cause and preaching the Gospel of his son Jesus Christ. I walked into the market place accompanied by Elder Alfred Cordon and two other brethren and we began to sing and pray unto God and call upon his name. A congregation flocked around us and we preached unto them and I bore testimony of the great work which God had set his hand to accomplish and of the Second Coming of Christ and warned the people to repent and be baptized for the remission of sins.
