Meeting Held December 1876. Opened with singing: "O Ye Mountains High". Prayer by Sister Peel.
Singing: "Come All the Saints Who Dwell On Earth".
Sister Morrison then rose and opened the meeting in the usual manner and read a letter of Eliza Snow about dressing the dead and said that the garments always must be placed on the body , then the shirt or sh**y and the robe shall be placed on the right shoulder and then for all things.
She wanted to hear how we was going on with the wheat matter. She wanted Sister Morrison to write with return mail how much we have all each gathered and hoped that we was working with success.
Then Sister Morrison addressed the Sisters and said that before she left her home, she called on the Lord, that He may give her so much of the good spirit that would lead and guide her in as much as we would have a good meeting and that the same spirit may bless us; that good principle and the plan of salvation may be l **ted out in such a manner that we all would be benefitted by. For the Spirit of spirit of distruction is always on hand to lead us astray, and he makes himself known where ever a good act will find its way. After she laid out many good principles, she gave room for other to talk, and hope that all the sisters will bear their testimony.
Sister Peel then rose and felt well for the opportunity to be together with the Sisters, for their testimonies and then spoke about some business matter of the Society, with much conversation took up a good part of the time. Sister Simpson and a few others spoke afterwards and the meeting was closed with prayer.

Prayer by Sister Peel
Sister Morrison addressed the sisters and felt glad to meet again and bear testimony of the true gospel. She said there was one thing that presses on her mind; it was the principle of Polygamy. She always felt proud to be a wife of a polygamist. The principle is true and holy and we should express to our children and make them understand that it is our honor to be a wife of a good man that has more wives. ......then to marry a man that believes not in the principle. Although there was trouble and strife enough with it, it was the surest way to gain exaltation in the world to come. She also spoke of the great privilege that was given to us to build temples to the Lord and encouraged the Sisters to use all the power and opportunity to help and sustain them to build it.
After this good instruction, she gave pause for the sisters to talk. Sister Fechser gave report from the conference and about Sister Eliza Snow about the articles from here to the Fair.
Then Sister Peel bore her testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, felt well and had a desire to do all the good she can and sustain the poor and keep the commandments of God. Sister Simpson also expressed the privileges to meet with the sisters. She spoke about the "Women's Exponent"; what a good paper it was and said it ought to be read in every house and family. She thought it was about the best literature that a woman could care for and we will never fail to have some good by reading it.
Several of the other sisters spoke in a good spirit. The meeting was dismissed after singing the hymn "Come Let Us Rejoice".

Brother Page rose and spoke especially of faith, showed us how to obtain faith, to get all things we need in time. He taught us to keep the commandments of the Lord and to teach our children to do the same by prayer. He introduced us to some of the stories of his life; how he was traveling from settlement to setttlement to bless the sick and the afflicted, what a great comfort it was to him when he could do good; how the Lord blessed him through faith in the Lord. All his remarks were very interesting and instructive. He also encouraged the sisters for the good of our society, and promised to come agian whenever the spirit directed him to do so.
Sister Morrison then said that she feels the great responsibility that rests upon her to lead this society and felt built up by the good instruction of Brother Page and invited him to come again.
Sister Peel, Sister Simpson and Sister Peterson bore faithful testimony to the truth of the Gospel and all went away rejoicing after singing and prayer.
