Those elders who are numbered in the foregoing list, to preside over the different states, will appoint conferences in all places in their several states where opportunities present, and will attend all the Conferences, or send experienced and able elders— who will preach the truth in righteousness, and present before the people “General Smith’s views of the powers and policy of the General Government”; and seek diligently to get up electors who will go for him for the presidency. All the elders will be faithful in preaching the Gospel in its simplicity, and beauty, in all meekness, humility, long suffering and prayerfulness; and the Twelve will devote the season to travelling, and will attend as many Conferences as possible.
Elder is instructed to pass through Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and , to visit the churches, hold conferences and preside over them.
, Pres.
, Clerk of the Quorum of the Twelve. [HC 6:340]
I copy from the Washington Globe of 14 March:—
A New advocate for a national bank. We have cast our eyes hastily over General mith’s (Mormon Joe) ‘Views of the power and Policy of the Government of the . 1844.’ This illustrious individual ‘goes the whole figure’ with Messrs. , [Daniel] Webster, Sargeant [John Sergeant], and the Whig party in general, for a national bank. After this, who can doubt the propriety of such an institution? Here is Joe’s plan for a ‘fiscal Agent,’ which is quite as sensible, both in nature and object, as the famous fiscalities:
[‘]For the accommodation of the people in every State and Territory, let Congress shew their wisdom, by granting a national bank, with branches in each State and Territory, where the capital stock shall be held by the nation for the mother bank, and by the States and Territories for the branches; and whose officers and directors shall be elected yearly by the people, with wages at the rate of Two dollars [p. 2015]
