Times and Seasons, 1 March 1842

The books that you left here I found to be very useful in circulating our appointments, and in spreading information concerning our doctrines, among the people. We have left Mr. Barret’s Academy, and have obtained a commodious chapel to worship in. . . . . We have proven the advice of Elder Wilford Woodruff

1 Mar. 1807–2 Sept. 1898. Farmer, miller. Born at Farmington, Hartford Co., Connecticut. Son of Aphek Woodruff and Beulah Thompson. Moved to Richland, Oswego Co., New York, 1832. Baptized into LDS church by Zera Pulsipher, 31 Dec. 1833, near Richland. Ordained...

to be very salutary to us, and have endeavored to follow it on all occasions. . . .
I am sorry to be under the painful necessity of having to communicate the intelligence of the death of our beloved sister, Elizabeth Morgan; she died of a complaint with which she had been afflicted many years; the whole church mourn her loss, and tears of grief are seen filling the eyes, not only of a bereaved husband and children, but of the Saints in general, and a large circle of friends by whom she was known and beloved. It is unnecessary for me to dwell upon her virtues, or to recount her acts of kindness and benevolence to you, when you first came to this city to raise the standard of truth: you found a home with her: you were always made welcome at the fire-side and table of deacon Morgan and his wife, our deceased sister. From that time forth she was your friend, till she became a Saint, since which time she has been an ornament to society, and a pattern of righteousness, and she died as she lived, the friend of virtue, of truth, and of God; and manifested to an astonishing degree a strong and unshaken assurance of a celestial glory, which caused our hearts to rejoice, and was a subject of deep interest to many of her worldly friends. In her dying moments she requested me to inform you that she blessed the day that the elders came to her house, and blessed the hour in which she was baptized by you.
She refused to have her doctor attend her, in consequence of which she was refused a burial until a Coroner’s Inquest was called, and held over her. In the inquest the jury sought very industriously to bring us in guilty of “manslaughter,” but finally decided that the evidence for that purpose was not quite strong enough; so you see that we very fortunately escaped Newgate this time, but how we shall fare the next time we are ignorant of, and careless about. If the work of God be furthered we will content ourselves in being used as instruments in any way that the Lord may see proper, and say amen to his decisions, whether free, or bound in chains, or in the company of kings and nobles. An account of the inquest has been published by most of the London Journals. I enclose with this communication an article upon this subject, which I have taken from the “Despatch,” one of the most popular periodicals in England.
After this inquest was held, I delivered sister Morgan’s funeral sermon. The chapel was crowded to excess, and I have not had a more attentive congregation while in England. There were many present, who, if they had been prepared with change of clothes, would have been baptized as soon as I had closed my discourse, although they had entered the chapel with minds darkened by false reports.
The Tower of London now lays low in ashes; it was burned down about a week since.
All the Saints send their love to you.
Yours, in the everlasting covenant.
LORENZO SNOW.

OBITUARY.
It is with deep regret that we announce the death of our highly esteemed and worthy sister, Laura Phelps, consort of Morris Phelps, who departed this life Feb. 2d, in the 36th year of her age. She was warned of her approaching dissolution, and desired her companion to have her remains conveyed to Nauvoo

She was one of the first who embraced the gospel, consequently suffered much persecution from her friends; but by leaving them, and also her father’s family, to be gathered with the Saints, she manifested to the world that no sacrifice was too great for her to make for the cause which she had espoused.
