[Heber C. Kimball]
I had a dreem that I [went on] bord of [a] strong chip in a narrow channel, thare was menny things heaped before it to hinder the progress of the chip but it went threw all oposition and brother Hide hade the same [dream] at the same time. The preas [priests] have com-bined agains[t] us and have praid [to the] /Lord/ to drive us out of the plase and if this would not dow they praid that the Lord would smite us but it seames that there God has gon [gone] a circuit for he dont hear them while our God is power [pouring] out His blessings upon us. After this combination of preas twock place in Preston we have bapised fifty in about eight days. The Lord has sed Evry wepon that is formed against us should not prosper and this we have found to be fulfill[ed] in evry instance what ever they dow it work for the glory of God, and in our favour and praies the Lord for his kindness to me and His servents for He is all ways with us.
