Jared, I had supposed not to have written more, but I have not as yet perished; and I make
not myself known to the Lamanites lest they should destroy me.

may be of worth unto my brethren, the Lamanites, in some future day, according to the
will of the Lord.

prayer; and after ye have done this ye shall have power that to him upon whom ye shall
lay your hands, ye shall give the Holy Ghost; and in my name shall ye give it, for thus do
3 Now Christ spake these words unto them at the time of his first appearing; and the
multitude heard it not, but the disciples heard it; and on as many as they laid their hands,
fell the Holy Ghost.
