refuge for those who shall be left of them?
Awake! O Kings of the earth! Come ye, O! come ye with  your gold and your silver, to the help of my people, to the  house of the daughter of Zion.
And, again, verily I say unto you, let my servant,  Robert Blashel Thompson, help you to write this proclamation,  for I am well pleased with him, and that he should be  with you, let him therefore hearken to your counsel and I  will bless him with a multiplicity of blessings, let him be  faithful and true in all things from henceforth and he shall  be great in mine eyes; but let him remember that his stew ardship will I require at his hands.
And again, verily, I say unto you, blessed is my servant  Hyrum Smith, for I the Lord loveth him, because of the integrity  of his heart, and because, he loveth that which is right  before me saith the Lord.
Again, let my servant John C. Bennett help you  in your labor, in sending my word to the Kings and peoples  of the earth, and stand by you, even you, my servant Joseph  Smith in the hour of affliction, and his reward shall not fail,  if he receive counsel, and for his love, he shall be great, for  he shall be mine if he do this, saith the Lord. I have  seen the work he hath done, which I accept, if he continue,  and will crown him with blessings and great glory.
And again, I say unto you, that it is my will that  my servant Lyman Wight, should continue in preaching for  Zion, in the spirit of meekness, confessing me before the world,  and I will bear him up, as on eagle’s wings, and he shall  beget glory and honor to himself, and unto my name, that  when he shall finish his work, that I may receive him unto  myself, even as I did my servant David [W.] Patten, who is with  me at this time, and also my servant Edward Partridge,  and also, my aged servant Joseph Smith Senr., who sitteth  with Abraham at his right hand, and blessed and holy is he,  for he is mine.
And, again, verily I say unto you, my servant George  Miller is without guile, he may be trusted because of the  integrity of his heart; and <for> the love he has to my testimony,  I the Lord loveth him. I therefore say unto you I seal upon  his head the office of a “bishoprick” like unto my servant  Edward Partridge, that he may receive the consecrations of mine  house, that he may administer blessings upon the heads of  the poor of my people saith the Lord; let no man despise  my servant George for he shall honor me. Let my servant  George, and my servant Lyman, and my servant John Snider,  and others, build a house unto my name, such an one [p. 4]
