Journal Entry

February 11, 1849 ~ Sunday

11th Sunday In company with my Brother & Sister in Law Ezra
Carter Jr
& Sarah B. Foss I met with the Saints at Br Birds
And I preached to them more then an hour from the [blank] ch
of Heb I had freedom in speaking it was the first time that
Father Ezra Carter Jr ever attended A Mormon meeting His
prejudice which has been strong against the Latter Day Saints
was perfectly broaken down to day. He expressed his entire satisfac-
tion at what he herd. And I find the prejudice of many men are
breaking down at the present time throughout the world
