Brother Brigham is wide awake enough behind the pillar, and is so plainly watch- ing the effect of the speaker's words on one auditor, that I become quite interested myself in the man's countenance. The argument is on the question of Baptism for the Dead. Is the man a new convert, or one who is likely to backslide?
