165 years ago today - May 9, 1858

Bro. Brigham spoke on people getting too good to remain on the Earth. Said he did not ask the people to live any better than he did said that in less than 5 years we should be 4 times as well off as we are now, and the reason why the people don't get rich is because they are so devilish stingy said we should put away our selfishness and cultivate the good that God has planted in us; told us not to destroy till the word was given; to take care of our gardens, houses, trees, and cattle.
