Letter to Elias Higbee with JS Postscript, 7 March 1840

With these feelings, and desires, and believing that, that  Being, who holds the destinies of nations of the earth  in his hands, will overrule all things for the fur therance of the work, which he has set his hands  to perform in these days, till the throne shall  be cast down, The Ancient of days sit and the  Kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the  Kingdom under the whole heavens shall be given  to the people of the Saints of the most high—  Whose kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and  dominions shall serve and obey him,
I subscribe myself Yours &c
Elias Smith
Dear Brother
I heartily concur in the above  sentiment
Yours with sentiments
And feelings of the kind best kind
