my rock which is my Gospel; deny not the spirit  of revelation nor the spirit of prophecy for wo  unto him that denieth these things; Therefore  treasure up in your heart until the time which  is in my wisdom that you shall go forth.
Behold I speak unto all who shall have  good desires, and have thrust in their sickels  to reap.
Behold I am Jesus Christ  the Son of God I am the life and the li ght of the world I am the same who came  unto my own and my own received me not:
but verily verily I say unto you that as many  as receiveth me to them will I give power to  become the sons of God even to them that  believe in my name. Amen.
About this time came an old Gent.  to visit us of <whom> whose name I wish to make  honorable mention Mr. of   Broom[e] Co, Pa. who having heard  of the manner in which we were occupying  our time very kindly and consideratel brought  us a quantity of provisions that we might  continue the translation translating <without> uninterupted <from> by  the want of the necessaries of life. Being  very anxious to know his duty relative to  this work I enquired of the Lord and  obtained for him the following Revelation

2 Behold the field is white already to  harvest therefore whoso desireth to reap [p. 39]
my rock which is my Gospel; deny not the spirit of revelation nor the spirit of prophecy for wo unto him that denieth these things; Therefore treasure up in your heart until the time which is in my wisdom that you shall go forth.
Behold I speak unto all who shall have good desires, and have thrust in their sickels to reap.
Behold I am Jesus Christ the Son of God I am the life and the light of the world I am the same who came unto my own and my own received me not:
but verily verily I say unto you that as many as receiveth me to them will I give power to become the sons of God even to them that believe in my name. Amen.
About this time came an old Gent. to visit us of whom I wish to make honorable mention Mr. of Broome Co, Pa. who having heard of the manner in which we were occupying our time very kindly brought us a quantity of provisions that we might continue translating without interupted from the want of necessaries of life. Being very anxious to know his duty relative to this work I enquired of the Lord and obtained for him the following Revelation
1 A great and marvelous work is about to come forth among the childdren of men. Behold I am God and give heed to my word which is quick and powerful sharper than a two edged sword to the dividing assunder of both joints and marrow therefore give heed unto my word
2 Behold the field is white already to harvest therefore whoso desireth to reap [p. 39]
