[Brigham Young Sermon]
If [I] can have attention [to] preach, '"Except ye are one ye are not mine.'" ... - In a political point of view we must become of one heart and of one mind as well as the gospel. At first gathering, Bishops appointed to deal out the inheritances of this people '- but never observed. This revelation [common consent] will yet be fulfilled. ... Is there one Territory in all our nation that is laying up grain for the poor and needy but Utah? No.
