I yet live and am bold to say that of the doctrine of Joseph Smith the Angel of the seventh dispensation there is not a firmer believer ^or defender^ on the face of the earth and hold every ordination given me as sacred as I did the day they ware given
~ Lyman Wight
I know of nothing of an earthly nature that would pleace me any better than to spend six or twelve month with my beloved Br Wilford Woodruff in preparing my life and journal together with many geographical skectches for the press, be assured those days and hours you speak of have been held as sacred by me as they could be by you, and I can heartily wish to spend an eternity together with that increasing friendship ^that^ then existed.

The spirit of God was made manifest to the heeling of the sick, cast^ing^ out devils, speaking in unknown tongues, discerning of spirits, and prophesying
