And the weakest of all saints wh[o]  are or can be called saints. Behold  verily thus saith the Lord unto yo u in consequence of evils and desig ns which do and will exist in the  hearts of conspireing men in the  last days I have warned you and  forewarn you by giving unto you  this word of wisdom by revelation  that inasmuch as any man drink th wine or strong drink among  you behold it is not good neither  meet in the sight of your father  ownly in assembling yourselve[s]  togather to offer up your sacram[e] nts before him. And behold this  should be wine yea pure wine  of the grape of the vine of your ow[n]  make. And again strong drink[s]  are not for the belly but for the  washing of your bodies. And aga[in]  tobacco is not for the body neither [p. [163]]
