H C Kimball arose and related a dream. Said He was travelling with President Young vary fast and they thought they could fly and they flew through the air and lit down upon a large plain. And they saw it coverd with large groups of snakes and they had to jump from place to place to get over them but they lay still while they were in there midst. Brother Young said the interpetation was the people were full of evil and speaking evil of them but would not grumble while they were present.
