I have enjoyed the best of health since I have been in this country for which I feel thankful to God their has been much sickness in this country for late season frost it as at precant hath I feel that Nothing But the goodness of God both preserved my health for I have been exposed to all we^a^ther–& travled at at times wet or dry cold or hot.
~ Wilford Woodruff
I have been much opposed by the Priests of the day in this south country as is the case with all all the Elders whare ever they travel if they preach the gospel in truth & purity they have generally worked behind my Back more than to my face some few however have public opposed me face to face such I have publicly answered & not in one instance has the Lord suffered me to be confounded

~ Wilford Woodruff

But as respects myself I cannot leeve the Church & Cause which I have espoused No I to highly prise those Eternal & Immortal glories to sacrafice them for the the things of this world which will perish
~ Wilford Woodruff
I have travled about 1,000 miles with the Prophet & Seer of the Church I have attended the conferences & been acquainted with the first Elders of the Church I have herd their teachings & beheld the the spirit they were of & the gifts & graces which Christ said should follow the believer (or Si◊gns) are manifest in the Church for what a person has experianced he knows I have been made partaker of some of the blessings myself such as the gifts of healing Tongues & interpetations of tongues for which I feell to thank God (not wishing to bo^a^st) but acknowledge that every good & perfect gift cometh from God which is the same yesterday to day & forever & his Gospel gifts & graces the same & the same causes produces the same afects to day as Ancie[ntly]
~ Wilford Woodruff
Let a man now Preach the same gospel [an]d that Paul & the rest of the Apostles tought & his name at once will be cast out as Evil among men Let him now contend for that faith once delivered to the Saints before this unb[e]liev[ing] generation & who would receieve him not the mithey, the rich, the noble, the wise of the day whare is the honest Enquirer after truth tha[t] [c]annot see the faith the Ancients Saints possessed it [3 illegible words] fait[h] that the worlds were framed God spake chaos herd. [&] worlds came into order by reason of the faith their was in HIM. So with man al^s^o—he spake by faith in the name of God, and the sun stood still, the moon obeyed, mountains removed, prisons fell, lions mouths were closed, the human heart lost its enmity, fire its violence, armies their power, the sword its terror, and death its dominion, and all this by reason of the faith which was in them. Had it not be[en] for the faith which was in man, they might have spoken to the sun, the moon, the mo [page torn] prisons, lions, the human heart, fire, armies, the sword, or to death in vain. This is th fai [page torn] the Ancient saints.
~ Wilford Woodruff
if the Church continues to go from grace to grace and from faith to faith it will soon lack no good gift and as the Lord is the same in time and in eternity yesterday to day & forever if we as saints are pure before him what Enoch saw we can see what Moses did we can do what Peter had we can have what the saints endured, we can endure and what the righteous receieve we shall receieve. Glorious prospect What Joy to come O I wan[t] a world of words— a univers of praise & an eternity of gratitude to thank the Lord for what he has done and will do for those who love and serve him faithfully unto the end
~ Wilford Woodruff
the servents of Jesus Chris[t] go whithersoever he commands them to carry glad tidings to proclaim salvation to all that will accept fit according to the conditions of the gospel that the kingdom of hea[v]en [illegible] may come: yea the joyful day be ushered in when Israel shall be gathered from the [illegible] four quarters of the earth to meet their Redeemer
~ Wilford Woodruff
it is a day of warning and not many words for as it was in the days of Noah it will be when Christ comes he most assuredly will overtake this world as a thief in the night
