CONFERENCE MINUTES.
Continuation of last April’s Conference.
The president having arrived; the choir sung  a hymn. Elder A[masa] Lyman offered prayer.

As the wind blows very hard, it  will be hardly possible for me to make you all  hear unless there is profound attention. It is of  the greatest importance, and the most solemn  of any that can occupy our attention, and that  is, the subject of the dead; on the decease of  our brother [King] Follett, who was crushed to death [p. 612]
