Mormon History, Mar 28, 1847 (Morning)

[Brigham Young Sermon] President Brigham Young said while I am here the people can be controlled whether I have power or not. You will find when I am gone that rebellious and arbitrary spirits will arise who will usurp authority that was never given to them and loose sight of the council that was given to them and will kick up the devil among the people. When these things takes place remember what was told you. -- Winter Quarters, Nebraska [Journals of John D. Lee 1846-47 and 1859. Charles Kelly, ed. Salt Lake City: University of Utah Press, 1984. 136]
