[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 21st Note Spent A part of the day at Fathers & part at Sister Fosses. We had a family meeting in the evening. Father Carter was present Also Joseph Fabyan. We had A good time.
I expressed my feelings in plaineness concerning my course & the dealings of the Lord with me. Phebe Also spoke in great Planeness concerning her Course And that her Parents & friends would know in eternity why she had taken the Course she had in leaving her fathers house & following the Saints. The spirit of the Lord was with us. Br Carter spoke A few moments to edifycation.
Father Carter said He was satisfyed with us And if their was A Society of the Saints whare he could spend the few remaining days with them which he had to spend on earth he would be glad to. It was an interesting time to us all.
