15 Let the residue of the elders of this  church, who are coming to this land, some of  whom are exceedingly blessed, even above  measure, also, hold a conference upon this  land. And let my servant Edward Partridge  direct the conference, which shall be held by  them. And let them also return, preaching  the gospel by the way, bearing record of the  things which are revealed unto them: for ver ily the sound must go forth from this place  into all the world; and unto the uttermost  parts of the earth, the gospel must be preached  unto every creature, with signs following them  that believe. And behold the Son of man  cometh: Amen.
