TO THE BRETHREN IN
It is highly important, for the forward ing
, that an equal
distribu tion of labor should be made, in relation to time; as a
superabundance of hands one week, and none the next, tends to re tard
the progress of the work; there fore, every brother is requested to be
par ticular to labor on the day set apart for the same, in his ward;
and to remember that he that sows sparingly shall also reap
sparingly,—so that if the brethren want a plentiful harvest, they
will do well to be at the place of labor in good season in the
morning, bringing all necessary tools, ac cording to their occupation;
and those who have teams bring them also, unless other wise advised by
the temple committee.
Should any one be detained from his
labor by unavoidable circumstances, on the day appointed, let him
labor the next day, or the first day possible.
B.—The captains of the respective wards are particularly requested to be
at the place of labor on their respective days, and keep an accurate
account of each man’s work, and be ready to exhibit a list of the
same when called for.
The heart of the
trustee is daily made to rejoice in the good
feelings of the breth ren, made manifest in their exertion to carry
forward the work of the Lord, and rear his
; and it is hoped that
nei ther planting, sowing or reaping will here after be made to
interfere with the regu lations hinted at above.
