Mormon History, May 30, 1849

[Brigham Young Sermon] President Young observed that he wanted the bishops to see that every man wrought his tenth day on tithing. The bishops should be with them, and if anyone failed, (they would) know who it was. Some attended to slip along without paying their tithing. But there would be a time of reckoning. The President advised the bishops to employ masons and stonecutters to work constantly, and other men to do private work. He requested all to be punctual to work their regular day. -- Salt Lake City [Journal History of the Church, Selected Collections from the Archives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints DVD 2 (2002)]
