4 Thou shalt not leave this place until after conference  and my servint Joseph be appoint[e]d to preside over  the conference by the voice of it and what he saith to  thee thou shalt tell And again thou shalt  take thy Bro betwe[e]n him and thee alone  and tell him that those things which he hath  written from that stone are not of me and that Satan  decieveth him for behold these things have not been  appointed unto him; neither shall any thing be appointed  unto any of this church contrary to the church coven ants for <all> things must be done in order and by  common consent in the church by the prayer of faith
5 And thou shalt assist to settle all things these  things according to the covenants of the church  before thou shalt take thy journey among the  Lamanites And it shall be given thee from  the time that thou shalt go until the time  that thou shalt return what thou shalt do  And thou open thy mouth at all tim[e]s declaring  my gospel with the sound of rejoicing Amen [p. 92]
