160 years ago today - Oct 20, 1862 (Afternoon)

[Brigham Young]
The President then arose and said, '"I will not ask any of the rest of the brethren to speak; I am going to preach a short sermon myself, and that is, go to and get out lumber to make yourselves bins, then thrash this wheat that you have raised in such abundance and take care of it, then when you have got these things done I will come and preach to you again.'" (This was the shortest sermon preached during the journey, but it was so significant that all who heard will doubtless remember it.) -- Willard, Utah
