INSTRUCTIONS TO TWO APOSTLES
Revelation Received Tuesday, April 17, 1838
By the Prophet Joseph (D&C 114; HC 3:23)
For David W. Patten and Brigham Young
Verily thus saith the LORD: It is wisdom in My servant David W. Patten, that he settle up all his business as soon as he possibly can, and make a disposition of his merchandise, that he may perform a mission unto Me next spring, in company with others, even twelve including himself, to testify of My name and bear glad tidings unto all the world.
For verily thus saith the LORD, that inasmuch as there are those among you who deny My name, others shall be planted in their stead and receive their bishopric. Amen.
Verily thus saith the LORD, let My servant Brigham Young go unto the place which he has bought, on Mill Creek;
And there provide for his family until an effectual door is opened for the support of his family-- until I shall command him to go hence;

And not to leave his family until they are amply provided for. Amen.
