Title Ezra Clark, page 008
Description 8 EZRA THOMPSON CLARK and sorrow of the Saints at Nauvoo. They took great pride in the development of the city, and were with that mourn- ful throng that went to meet the bodies of their beloved prophet and patriarch. Aunt Mary said that such a vast procession of weeping Saints would never be forgotten. Historians declare that "Joseph Smith, the Martyr, was worth more to his people than Joseph Smith, the Prophet." With those who had been loyal to the prophet and perhaps even more so with the indifferent ones, there was but one dominating thought, now that he was gone-"What would he have us do? Many times the prophet had said that the Twelve Apostles, of whom Brigham Young was president, should carrv on the work of the Lord in case he was taken from them. When a meeting of the Saints was called to consider leadership, Sidney Rigdon put in a plea for his promotion as president of the Church and gave a two-hour discourse. In the afternoon President Young gave a clarion call to which all hearts responded. In his "Attention All," as he addressed the Saints, he demonstrated his power, his authority, and his masterful leadership. The Saints no longer felt that they had no shepherd. So striking was Brigham Young's commanding personality, manifesting as it did the same desire as Joseph's to serve the Saints, love them, and lead them to a triumphant accomplishment of the plan which the Lord had revealed for their salvation, that the Saints declared that it was almost as though the Prophet Joseph had returned. Ezra and his wife were at this meeting. He often referred to the spirit of that gathering and said that it was a strong testimony to the divine calling of Brigham Young. From that day, all looked to President Young with the utmost confidence. A spirit of security and peace prevailed
