administering the gospel and the things of the kingdom unto the and unto the world shall answer the debt unto the in thus it cometh out of the church for according to the law every man who cometh up to must lay all things before the in . And now verily I say unto you that as every in this part of the vinyard must give an account of his unto the in this part of the vinyard a certificate from the judge or in this part of the vinyard unto the in rendereth every man acceptable and answereth all things for an and to be received as a wise steward and as a faithfull labourer otherwise shall not be accepted of the in . And now verily I say unto you let every Elder who shall give an account unto the of the church in this part of the vinyard be recommended by the church or churches in which he labours that he may render himself and his accounts approved in all things
And again let my servents who are appointed as over the litterary concerns of my church have claim for assistence in all things upon the or Bishops in all things that the revelations may be published and go forth unto the ends of the earth that they also may obtain funds which shall benefit the church in all things that they also may render themselves approved in all things and be accounted as wise stewards. And behold this shall be an ensample for all the extensive of my church in whatsoever land they shall be established and now I make an end of my sayings Amen [p. [2]]
