Revelation, 6 August 1836 [D&C 111]
A Revelation given in Mass. August 6th. 1836
I the Lord your God am not displeased with your coming this journey, notwithstanding your follies. I have much treasure in this city for you, for the benefit of Zion; and many people in this city, whom I will gather out in due time, for the benefit of Zion, through your instrumentality: Therefore it is expedient that you should form acquaintance with men in this city, as you shall be led, and as it shall be given you: And it shall come to pass in due time, that I will give this city into your hands, that you shall have power over it, insomuch that they shall not discover your secret parts; and its wealth pertaining to gold and silver, shall be yours. Concern not yourselv[e]s about Zion, for I will deal more mercifully with her. Tarry in this place, and in the regions round about, and the place where it is my will you should tarry for the main, shall be signalized unto you by the peace and power of my spirit, that shall flow unto you.
This place you may obtain by hire, &c And inquire diligently concerning the more antient [ancient] inhabitants and founders of this city: Therefore be as wise as serpents, and yet without sin, and I will order all things for your good as fast as ye are able to receive them. Amen.
