A question asked of the Lord concerning  the trying of the first Presidency of the  Church of Latter Day Saints for transgression  according to the item of law found in  third Sec of the Book of Covenants 37 verse  Whether the decision of such an counsil  of one Stake shall be conclusive for  Zion and all the Stake——
Answer; Thus saith the Lord the time  has now come when a decision  of such an council would not answer  for Zion and all her stakes——
What will answer for Zion and all her  Stakes
Answer; Thus saith the Lord  let the first presidency of my Church be  held in full fellowship in Zion and all  her stakes until they shall be found transgress ors by such an high council—— [p. [1]]
