[George Q. Cannon]
After breakfast held meeting again and we [had] an excellent time; Bro. Woodbury spoke in tongues and it went like fire through me for he spoke with power after he got thro' Bro. Allred who presided in the meeting called upon us for the interpretation of it. I felt impressed to get up and speak and I done so although I did not know whether I had the interpretation or not. When I opened my mouth it came spontaneously with force and it was prophecy in regard to us and the work which was very cheering. [Another attendee reported that "the interpertation was that we should be blessed in as mutch as we would goi [go] ahead .. Magnify our offices Callings and put our trust in him and keep his Commandments goi in faith".] Held blessing meeting this afternoon for the natives.
