Brethren and sisters, God bless you. Let us love one another; let us seek to promote one another’s welfare. And let the Bishops and the Relief Societies, and the Young Men’s and Young Women’s Associations, and our mechanics and manufacturers, and also our merchants, and all hands, operate in the interests of the whole for the welfare of Zion and the building up of the Kingdom of God upon the earth; and the blessings of God will begin to rest upon us, Zion will begin to arise, and the glory of God will rest upon her. Amen.

– John Taylor, 8/4/1878
