From Diary of Charles Lowell Walker:
Sunday 4th May  P.M. went to Meeting. Br Anthony Ivins just returned from his Mission. Gave a brief concise history of Mexico since the Spanish conquest...Two Lamanties [sic] from the Salt River country, Arizona, spoke to us expresing their joy in hearing and obeying the gospel. Br Millen Ray was the interpreter. Br Snow then spoke to them a short time and the coming forth of the Book of Mormon and the promises and covenants made to the House of Israel by the ancients....I could have listened to him for hours.... 
Tues 6  Nature smiles....
