Joseph Smith (19 Jul 1840): "speaking of the Land of Zion, It consists of all North & South America"
...speaking of the Land of Zion, It consists of all N[orth] & S[outh] America but that any place where the Saints gather is Zion which every righteous man will build up for a place of safety for his children...The redemption of Zion is the redemption of all N[orth] & S[outh] America."
