Discourse 1866-10-07
Elder Wilford Woodruff occupied the stand and spoke by way of testimony in a most interesting manner, referring to the way in which the Lord had work- ed upon him when a young man, be- fore he had heard of the Gospel, pre- paring him to receive it; and of the manner in which God had worked upon President B. Young and many other Elders, for the same purpose. He also spoke of the efforts of the adversary to destroy those noble spirits who had re- ceived the truth at an early day of the Church, and of evil spirits coming to them in numbers at various times and places with this object; bearing testi- mony of having been so attacked in London, when in company with Elder George A. Smith, and of three angels appearing to him who relieved him from the power and presence of the wicked spirits. This testimony, he said, he had never borne publicly before; and the spirit which accompanied it de- clared its truth to the immense congre- gation to whom it was for the first time given. During his remarks he related many interesting incidents of the pro- tecting care which the Lord has exer- cised over his servants.
