Letter “To All People,” 6 April 1840

such as do this, shall have the prayers  and blessings of a poor and an afflicted  people whose blood has flowed to test  the depths of their sincerity, and to  crimson the face of freedoms soil with  MARTYR’S BLOOD.
Mr. Hyde is instructed by this con ference to transmit to this country  nothing but simple facts for publication,  entirely disconnected with any peculiar  views of theology, leaving each class  to make their own comments and draw  their own inferences.
Given under our hands, at the time  and place before mentioned.
JOSEPH SMITH, jr. Ch’r.
