Autobiography 1858 Deseret News

—As I met in the evening with a large assembly in Hanley, the Lord revealed unto me that it would be the last meeting that I would hold with the Saints in the Potteries for many days; I told the people it was the last meeting I should hold with them for a season; it created much excitement. I had appointments out for a week, which I got bro. Cordon to fill. I went before the Lord in pray- er, and asked him where I should go; the Spirit said, "Go to the south." According to

It being Sunday, I preached twice through the day to a large assembly in the City Hall, in the town of Han- ley, and administered the sacrament unto the Saints. In the evening I again met with a large assembly of the Saints and strangers, and while singing the first hymn the Spirit of the Lord rested upon me, and the voice of God said to me, "This is the last meeting that you will hold with this people for many days.” I was astonished at this, as I had many appointments out in that district. When I arose to speak to the people, I told them that it was the last meeting I should hold with them for many days. They were as much astonished as I was. At the close of the meeting four persons came forward for baptism, and we went down into the water and baptized them. In the morning I went in secret before the Lord, and asked Him what His will was concerning me.
