Brigham Young
We held a meeting at Payson on the 23rd [March 1851]. President Heber C. Kimball and Elders Charles C. Rich, Amasa M. Lyman and R. McBride addressed the people. I was sick at the sight of so many of the Saints running to California, chiefly after the God of this world, and was unable to address them.
