[Apostle Wilford Woodruff]
As this is a day that many are celebrating the mariage of the Queen [Victoria] I thought it no more than just & right that I should honor the King of heaven by advocating his cause & preaching the gospel of his Son Jesus Christ. So I walked out into the Market place ... & we began to Sing praises unto God & call upon his name & a congregation flocked around us. ... We testified of the Second comeing of Christ & warned the people to repent & be Baptized for the remission of their Sins, & when we had finished our testimony we dismissed the people & walked of with many following us. ...
