take their journey also unto the south countries yea let all these take their journey as I have commended them going from house to house and from village to village and from City to City and in whatsoever house ye enter and they receive you leave your blessings upon that house and in whatsoever house ye enter and they receive you not ye shall depart speedily from that house and shake off the dust of your feet as a testimoney against them and you shall be filled with joy and gladness and know this that in the day of judgement you shall be judges of that house and condemn them and it shall be more tollarable for the heathen in the day of judgement than for that house14

See Mark 6:10–11; and Luke 10:5–12. A revelation dated July 1830 gave this same admonition, telling JS and Oliver Cowdery that when their testimony was rejected they were to “leave a cursing instead of a blessing by casting off the dust of your feet against them as a testimony.” (Revelation, July 1830–A [D&C 24:15].)  


therefore gird up your loines and be faithfull and ye shall over come all things and be lifted up at the last day even so Amen [1/4 page blank] [p. [2]]

One leaf, measuring 12¾ × 7½ inches (32 × 19 cm). The top and bottom of the leaf, as well as the left side of the recto, have the square cut of manufactured paper.
