160 years ago today - Jan 11, 1863

President Young Preached in the Afternoon. He read the Vision [D&C 76] ... He said all Children who died in childhood would go to the Celestial kingdom and their Mothers if they do not keep the Celestial law [plural marriage?] will not go whare there children are & will never see them again. But the Children will be given to others. He said many interesting things....

I attended Meeting at the 14 ward school House. O Pratt Preached A vary singlar discourse. He spoke of building the New Jerrusalem in Missouri. Said we must not build log Houses as the City would be translated & they would be Everlasting Habitations & would remain forever.

He spoke of the Starry Heavens. He did not think the sun or any star which mortal Eye Could see were Celestial Bodies but as soon as a world became Celestial it Could not be seen by man no more than a spirit Could be seen or a Resurrected body by mortal Man.
