[George Q. Cannon]
In evening had meeting [among the missionaries] and had an excellent meeting time and a good flow of the spirit; Bro. Woodbury spoke in tongues and Bro. Hammond interpreted. [an attendee reported: "Bro Woodberry spoke in tongues, and Bro Hammond had the interpretation in part which was in substance as follows, The Lord was well pleased with us, that this poeple [sic] were a remnant of Israel, that all opposition should be overcome, that temples should be built in these lands and that this poeple should be redeemed, and that the Elders were sent to these Islands through the prayers of their fathers who have gone to the world of the spirits"]
