    Think of what I told you, that if you stay alive I will live on within you. This, I believe, is the substance, so far as my memory serves, though I shall not pledge my veracity for the correctness of the account as I have given. McBride, " Of Governments and Laws ," online at history. In the morning he went to his labor as usual, but soon the vision of the heavenly messenger was renewed, instructing him to go immediately and view those things of which he had been informed, with a promise that he should obtain them, if he followed the directions and went with an eye single to the glory of God. No sooner did he behold this sacred treasure than his hopes were renewed, and he supposed his success certain; and without first attempting to take it from its long place of deposit, he thought, perhaps, there might be something more equally as valuable, and to take only the plates, might give others an opportunity of obtaining the remainder, which could be secure, would still add to his store of wealth. In vain did the hoary head and man of gray hairs ask for mercy—in vain did the mother plead for compassion—in vain did the helpless and harmless infant weep for very anguish—and in vain did the virgin seek to escape the ruthless hand of revengeful foes and demons in human form—all alike were trampled down by the feet of the strong, and crushed beneath the rage of battle and war!

    Such an unhallowed age and circumstances of men and things being among the possible impossibilities, let us rejoice, that the work of God, though at first almost imperceptible, continues to roll on, conquering and to conquer, and will continue its progression, till every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that the truth is mighty and will prevail; yea, till the earth shall rest from the convulsions of wickedness, and again become the garden of Eden. Alternately did these, with a swift reflection of the words of the holy messenger,—"Remember, that he who does this work, who is thus favoured of the Lord, must do it with his eye single to the glory of the same, and the welfare and restoration of the scattered remnants of the house of Israel"—rush upon his mind with the quickness of electricity. My mom was soo happy when she found out it was a boy. Our road has frequently been spread with the "fowler's snare," and our persons sought with the eagerness of the Savage's ferocity for innocent blood, by men either heated to desperation by the insinuations of those who professed to be "guides and way-marks" to the kingdom of glory, or the individuals themselves!

    For the present I close, with a thankful heart that I am permitted to see thousands rejoicing in the assurance of the promises of the Lord, confirmed unto them through the obedience of the everlasting covenant. But in that day he didn't come back alive he did come back in that day but not alive and even after I saw him I couldn't believe what happened to my big brother but I'm so proud to be his sister I love him so much. Kissing you for the last time — till we meet again, Your Loving Brother. It is necessary to observe, that even the part cleared was only occupied for pasturage, its steep ascent and narrow summit not admitting the plow of the husbandman with any degree of ease or profit. The north end rises quite sudden until it assumes a level with the more southerly extremity, and I think I may say an elevation higher than at the south a short distance, say half or three fourths of a mile.

[Letter to] Dear Brother Phelps book

Who can contemplate like scenes without sorrowing, and who so destitute of commiseration as not to be pained that man has fallen so low, so far beneath the station in which he was created?

Whatever may be the feeling of men on the reflection of past acts which have been performed on certain portions or spots of this earth, I know not, neither does it add or diminish to nor from the reality of my subject.

TURE Beauty For the present I close, with a thankful heart that I am permitted to see thousands rejoicing in the assurance of the promises of the Lord, confirmed unto them through the obedience of the everlasting covenant.

I was awake the whole night. By them will the Lord work a great and a marvelous work: the wisdom of the wise shall become as nought, and the understanding of the prudent shall be hid, and because the power of God shall be displayed, those who profess to know the truth, but walk in deceit, shall tremble with anger; but with signs and with wonders, with gifts and with healings, with the manifestations of the power of God, and with the Holy Ghost, shall the hearts of the faithful be comforted.

While young, I have been informed he was afflicted with sickness; but I have been told by those for whom he has labored, that he was a young man of truth and industrious habits.

By turning to the th and th pages of the Book of page 35 Mormon, you will read Mormon's account of the last great struggle of his people, as they were encamped round this hill Cumorah. Dear Brother in the Lord:—Yours of February last, in the 6th number of the Messenger and Advocate, is before me, and, as the spirit directs, I shall proceed to answer.

Share Your Story Here. He had come, to be sure, and found the word of the angel fulfilled concerning the reality of the record, but he had failed to remember the great end for which they had been kept, and in consequence could not have power to take them into his possession and bear them away.

Lots of times I get really angry with God that I never knew him, that I never got to have an older brother. Lee, demurred. I love you Tony and miss you everyday!!!!!! Those who kept the commandments of the Lord on this land, desired this at his hand, and through the prayer of faith obtained the promise, that if their descendants should transgress and fall away, that a record might be kept, and in the last days come to their children.

At about one mile west rises another ridge of less height, running parallel with the former, leaving a beautiful vale between. Such is the case, though men rack their very brains to invent falsehoods, and then waft them upon every breeze, to the contrary notwithstanding.

Such was the instruction and this the caution. You passed away on September 21, and as of that date I have never been the same. New light is occasionally bursting in to our minds, of the sacred scriptures, for which I am truly thankful. On Monday, the 6th, I assisted him in arranging some business of a temporal nature, and on Tuesday, the 7th, commenced to write the Book of Mormon.

I can feel his presence and it draws a rare, sincere smile from me.LETTER IV. To W. W. Phelps, Esq. DEAR BROTHER: In my last, published in the 3d No.

of the Advocate I apologized for the brief manner in which I should be obliged to. To my older brother, I know I don’t tell you all the time, but I am so grateful to have you in my life.

You were my first best friend and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Because of you, I am who I am today. I have a lot to thank you for, and this letter is dedicated to you.

W. W. Phelps

Thank you for making me sylvaindez.com: Leah Forbes. Holograph, signed. LETTER NO. II. From WW Phelps. Liberty, Mo. Nov. 6, DEAR BROTHER: I am one, but the world has many, and the many so various and extensive that every mind and body may have its portion, and satisfaction, even of truth: wherefore I continue the sketches of the western wilds.

After William W. Phelps betrayed the Prophet Joseph Smith, Brother Phelps asked for Joseph’s forgiveness. The Prophet wrote him this letter: “Dear Brother Phelps:—I must say that it is with no ordinary feelings I endeavor to write a few lines to you in answer to [your letter]; at the same time I am rejoiced at the privilege granted me.

My Own Dear Brother is the story of Ursula Hildesheim, her brother Anton Hildesheim and Schosi Hillier, three youngsters in Nazi-ruled alpine Austria.
