An Epistle of the Twelve <Apostles>, to the saints scattered abroad among  the nations Greeting,
Beloved Brethren— You will perceive by the [blank] min utes of a Conference held in this , on the 16th. inst. ——, that we have returned from the mission which  was required of us by the Lord, and have now been  called upon to assist in building up the stakes of Zion, and  of planting the saints upon the lot of their inheritance:  and feeling as we do a humble reliance upon divine aid at  all times, in our unremitting desire to be useful to our fellow  men, and especially to the household of faith, that they may  be prepared for the great things which God is about to reveal  and which speedily await this generation, we feel anxious to  improve the earliest opportunity to make known unto you the  mind of the spirit concerning those things which require your  more immediate attention.
It will be discovered in the minutes before referred to, that  we have already began to select such individuals as have been  with the church, and have had the opportunity of becoming  acquainted with the principles thereof to some extent and to  designate certain towns and cities where they will locate them selves and build up churches inasmuch as the people are  willing to receive them. These generally will not take their  departure from this for their several stations, until after the  October conference, previous to which they will have the op portunity of receiving particular instructions in relation to their  mission and of becoming more perfectly acquainted with those  principles which are necessary to be acted upon, in order that  they may become highly useful in helping to roll forth the kingdom [p. 27]
