Preface

THE Nineteenth Volume of the is not a whit behind its predecessors in the simplicity of its contents, or the advanced character of the truths contained therein.

It is impossible to give monetary value to the past volumes of this publication, and the best evidence that they are appreciated, is to be found in the fact that they are sought alike by non-members as well as by members of the Church, and in contrast with many works of greater pretentions, book-stalls are searched in vain for even solitary copies.

This volume contains the last discourses of our late venerated leader, President B. Young; here, with those delivered by his associates of the Twelve, they are enshrined to show to unborn generations the grand development of progressive man when subject to the teachings of the Eternal Spirit.

Years shall enhance the interest and importance of these volumes as a library of reference and repository of truth.
