Journal Entry

August 06, 1844 ~ Tuesday

6th [FIGURE] We stoped at various places on the
river among others Burlington, after
which we prepared our minds to once
more behold the city of Nauvoo & embrace our
families ^& friends^ we arived in the city of Nauvoo at
8 oclock in the evening at the upper stone house
we were hailed with Joy by all the citizens
we met. I accompanied the quorum of the
Twelve to their families after which I was
conveyed to my own and truly felt to rejoice to once
^more^ embrace my wife and children. I spent the night
at home with my family, thus it is with me. I have
not spent but one summer either at home or with
the Church, for the last 10 years as my lot has been
all the day long in the vineyard, I go and come from
year to year distance from Galenia to Nauvoo 250 m
when we landed in the city there was a deep gloom
seemed to rest over the city of Nauvoo which we never
experienced before

I attended the Special Conference of the Authorities of the Church, when the thousands who assembled on the occasion, voted unanimously to sus- tain the Quorum of the Twelve Apos- tles as the Presidency and leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. I have ever been impressed, since my first acquaintance with the Church and kingdom of God upon the earth, with the importance of keeping a journal and record of the dealings of God with this people, and our official acts in the ministry, and under this view I have written sketches of most of the sermons and teachings which I have heard from the mouth of Joseph Smith the Prophet, and many of the teachings of the Twelve Apostles and others. Believing this course to be beneficial, I would recommend the Elders of Israel to do likewise, that what is recorded on earth may be re- corded in heaven. CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS.
