Revelation, 20 March 1832

First Shall we procure the paper required of our  breatheren in their letter and carry it with us or not  and if we do what moneys shall we use for that purpose
It is expedient saith the Lord unto you that the paper is  shall <be> purchesed for the <printing of the> book of the Lords commandments and it  must needs be that you take it with [you] for it is not expedient  that my servent Martin [Harris] should as yet go up unto the land  of Zion let the purchase be made by the Bishop of [if] it  must needs <be> by hire let whatsoever is done be done in  the name of the Lord
Second shall we finish the translation <of the New testament> before we go to  Zion or wait till we return
It is expedient saith the Lord that there be no delays  and thus saith the Lord for the greatest good and benef[i]t of  the church Wherefore omit the translation for the  present time
