[Charles Walker]
Pres [Erastus] Snow ... Related the circumstance of P[arley] P. Pratt and others trying to organize a Kingdom and how they were perplexed and bothered in their efforts even in framing the plan, and after they had exhausted all their Wisdom and understanding and spent weeks in trying to accomplish the desired [end]-and God thro Joseph Smith revealed unto him the following as a plan, viz., My People are the constitution and I am their God. Henceforth do as I command you.

[Charles L. Walker diary, June 5, 1870, as quoted in Jedediah S. Rogers (editor), The Council of Fifty: A Documentary History, Signature Books (2014)]
