Joseph Smith, whom I did call upon by mine Angels, my ministering servents and by mine own voice out of the Heavens, to bring forth my work; which foundation he did lay, and was faithful and I took him to myself. Many have marvelled becaus of his death, but it was needful that he should seal his tes- timony with his blood, that he might be honored and the wicked might be condemned.
~ Brigham Young
Have I not deliverd you from your enemies, ownly in that I have left a witness of my name? Now, therefore, harken, O ye people of my church; and ye Elders, listen together you have received my kingdom, be diligent in keeping all my commandments, lest judgment come upon you, and your faith fail you, and your enemies triumph over you.
~ Brigham Young
