B. Y.[:] Its [the Nauvoo Temple] a poor temple, it wont be 20 years until it can't contain a congregation.'[I] dreamed before we left [Nauvoo] that Bro. Kimball & I went back & on to the roof, & [we were] stepping on it carefully lest [we would] fall thro.'[T]he wall presses in & the timbers [were] bend, & rot[t]ed. [W]e have been gone I says 20 years & its rooted [rotted] so that we have got to make all new timbers. B. Y.[: W]e never shall go back to possess that temple until [the] right shall take place'& I don't care what is done to preserve the temple.'We'll rent the Temple
