Title Gentile Account, page 085
Description He began an excellent address on the subject of Co-operation- and presently paused to inquire if they were ready to bless the water. "Not yet", was the reply. He had fairly warmed into his subject again, when one stood up to announce that they were ready now. He paused, keeping his subject in mind; but the stupid Bishop instead of pronounc- ing the prayer of consecration himself waited for poor Elder to do so. The effort to recall his thoughts was too much for him; he broke down three times in repeating it, and nearly cried with mortification, nor could he keep his voice from time to time from faltering during the remainder of his address. Good soul! He confessed to K. afterwards that he had received it [as] a chastisement for his vanity, having suffered his thoughts in the first meeting to stray from Brother Johns' address towards the arrangement of his own argument, instead of waiting for inspiration. Inspired or not, he spoke excellently well, and I for one thought he lost nothing by not having paid attention to Elder John's humming and hawing in the early meeting. Brigham Young then rose, and taking the Book of Mormon up read aloud the Prayer of Consecration88 and rebuked those who had laid on the Brother a second duty while his mind was full of a first. He then alluded to the recent improvement in his own health, and the almost entire recovery of his voice. He has a wonderful voice, and a very distinct enunciation. He seems to be using only an easy conversational tone, yet is distinctly heard Wrobably from 2 Nephi Chapter I+ne of several references in Mormon scriptures. 85
