Title Gentile Account, page 156
Description tion indicated. Several addresses were made, all on one subject "The Order of Enoch."l31 A young Bishop rose, a very young Bishop, not more than 2 1 years old I should think. He was a simple looking fellow, with a wide mouth full of prominent white teeth, ears set far back from his head, sandy hair and freckles. With us he would have been captain of a hose company probably. He made a little bit of a speech-a mere "testimony" of his willingness to do what- ever his faith should be called upon for. Then came a tall Bishop who looked like a Scotch-Yankee, and he came to the point at once regarding The Order of Enoch. He said that none of the revelations when first presented to him made themselves clear at once. Only he found in them the dim promise of something more welcome, which he enjoyed more and more as he gradually realised it in its fulness. He confessed that he did not now understand this matter, but it was welcome to him as far as he understood it, and he was willing to go on. Now uprose David C. [Cannon] looking like a Chinese with his squint, his olive complexion and black hair combed back from his wide forehead. I doubt however any Chinese possess- ing the winning expression of kindliness truth and courage that distinguishes the children's friend, "Brother David." He spoke only five or six sentences, the gist of them being that he had never found himself abandoned when he had trusted in `3'The Order of Enoch or "United Order," was named after the Biblical prophet Enoch. Genesis 5:18-24. The Pearl of Great Price, Book of Moses, Chapter 7 and Doctrine and Covenants Sections 38, 45, 76, and 107, record that the entire city of Enoch or "City of Zion" was taken up by the Lord because of its righteousness. This United Order was a communal plan where all production was shared so there was no poor or rich. Arrington, Great Basin Kingdom, 327-49. 156
