The neighbors flocked in. My husband spoke and I followed him. We had an interesting meeting, singing, talking, and praying. We retired to rest but I was too weary to sleep until about midnight. We arose at half past three and were on our way at four. . . . At half past six we halted on the prairie and built a large fire and all came together for a season of prayer. We then ate of our humble fare and were soon on our way again. At one o'clock we were on the campground and were faint and weary. We felt refreshed by eating a warm dinner. Our tent was pitched in the afternoon, and we made our beds. Had a good straw bed to lie on, and we slept sweetly the first night.--Letter 9, 1870, p. 2. (To Emma McDearmon, June 8, 1870.)

I am determined to make my home an asylum for those who need a home.-- Letter 11, 1868, p. 1. (To Edson White, March 30, 1868.)

Every dollar I have is the Lord's, to be used to His glory. . . . In every purchase I shall make I want to move to the glory of God. . . . I must use the means entrusted to me of my heavenly Father to help the needy, to help build meetinghouses, to send youth to our college, and to lift up and relieve the oppressed.--Ms 76, 1894, pp. 4, 5. (Diary, June, 1894.)

I ask that the Holy Spirit shall control my thoughts through the day. I plead for wisdom in judgment, clearness of brain, and understanding, that I may see the treasures in the Word of God, and bring out the precious truths in the simplest language.--Ms 174, 1897, p. 9. (Diary, July 1897.)

I do not depend upon myself. I must hang my helpless soul upon Jesus Christ. I feel my weakness. I know that in and of myself I can do nothing, but through Christ strengthening me I can do all things. Oh, how my soul longs for God!--Ms 63, 1893, pp. 3, 4. (Diary, Jan. 1893.)
