and the vicinity, through the medium of your columns, that there are many individuals amongst the numbers who have already arrived, as well as among those who are now on their way here, who never did belong to our Church, and others who once did, but who for various reasons, have been expelled from our fellowship. Amongst these there are some who have contracted habits which are at variance with the principles of moral rectitude (such as swearing, dram drinking &c) which immoralities the Church of Latter Day Saints is liable to be charged with, owing to our amalgamation under our late existing circumstances, And as we as a people do not wish to lay under any such imputation, we would also state, that such individuals do not hold a name, nor a place amongst us, that we altogether discountenance every thing of the kind, that every person once belonging to our community contracting and persisting in such immoral habits, have hitherto been expelled from our Society, And that all such as we may hereafter be informed of, we will hold no communion with, but will withdraw our fellowship from them. We wish further to state, that we feel ourselves laid under peculiar obligations to the Citizens of this place, for the patriotic feeling which has been manifested, and for the hand of liberality and friendship which has been extended to us in our late difficulties, and should feel sorry to see that philanthropy and benevolence abused by wicked and designing people— who under pretence of poverty and distress should try to work upon the feelings of the charitable and humane, get into their debt without any prospect or intention of paying, and finally perhaps we as a people be charged with dishonesty. We say that we altogether disapprove of such practices, and we warn the Citizens of Quincy
