Title Gentile Account, page 159
Description Here President Young handed him the "Book of Doctrines & Covenants," and requested him to read the "Revelation to Enoch" aloud. H e I so, stumbling, in the imperfect light of d'd the winter afternoon, over some of the long words and strange names, and apologised by saying that he "didn't know that he had ever read it before." "Time you should!" muttered Brigham Young drily. When he read the unpronounceable names "Alem and Ahashdah, Mahaleel and Pelagorum, and my servant Gazelam and Horah, and Olihah and Shalemanassar and Mehenison" sounding like titles in "Bombastes Furioso"t35 I felt inclined to laugh, but Brigham Young held up his hand for silence and when the reader paused, he said, "These, brethren and sisters are the names of those who were with Enoch and again with Joseph." I wonder whether he meant that they were spiritually present with Joseph, or were under other names the same souls in new "tabernacles" as they call our bodies! I must read over the "revela- tion." It speaks of goods "to be cast into the Lord's storehouse, to become the common property of the whole church," and again "that the poor shall be exalted in that the rich are made low." To my suspicious Gentile mind the "revelation" struck me as having been originally intended to influence the early disciples to let "Joseph" have the handling of their funds, but members in their own hands.
