The prayers of requested in behalf  of Mrs. [Roxsena] Repshar.
Prest. J. S. remark’d that sis. Repshar  had long since been advised to return to her husband — has been ascertain’d by good evidence that she left her  husband without cause— that he is a moral man  and a gentleman— she has got into a way of having  revelations, but not the rev. of God— if she will go  home we will pray for her, but if not our prayers will  do no good.
Prest. S. said he had one remark to make  respecting the baptism for the dead— to suffice for the  time being, until he has opportunity to discuss the  subject to greater length— that is, all persons baptiz’d  for the dead must have a Recorder present, that he  may be an eye-witness to testify of it. It will be  necessary in the grand Council, that these things be  testified— let it be attended to from this time, but  if there is any lack it may be at the expense of  our friends— they may not come forth &c.
