On s mountain stood
The mighty saviour great I am
With garments dyed in blood
 
2 And with him was a shining throung
The seed of Abraham
And this bright army sung the song
Of Moses and the Lamb

And sound thine honors high

There is also a great call for Books both in the church & out such as the Book of Mormon & covenents the latter of which many of the branches of the church is destitute because they cannot be obtained in this country. If there could be a quantity of Books sent in to this country say a general assortment containing that knowlege benificial to man & their there mint [might?] be many sold But for the want of room I close Your brother in the bonds of the covenent
