Pres. J. Smith bore testimony to the same— saying that when he was a youth he began to think about these these things but could not find out which of all the sects were right— he went into the grove & enquired of the Lord which of all the sects were right— he received for answer that none of them were right, that they were all wrong, & that the Everlasting convenat was broken— he said he understood the fulness of the Gospel from beginning to end— & could Teach it & also the order of the priesthood in all its ramifications— Earth & hell had opposed him & tryed to destroy him but they had not done it— & they <never would>.
