“Pres[iden]t.[Brigham]Young spoke 15 minutes and told the people not to trade another cent with any man who does not pay his tithing and help gather the poor, and pray in his family. In regard to all the men who had bought goods of our enemies of late, he told them to leave the School of the Prophets and not come to the communion table any more. ‘for we do not fellowship you’.”
