While at meeting Sunday some remarks were made about the young men and women attending the Theological class taught j in the basemen! o! the Tubern cle ev ' ery Sabbath morning at 9 (clock. Saving b; en somewhat through the mill 1 will venture to gues?: that those of our yrung elders who attend this class for fifty-two weeks, will not tind themselvts in the same pre dicament, that I did once in Europe, when called upon to delend the prin ciples ot our holy religiou and adduce proofs in defence of the same. Now if we will take a little pains to treas ure up the book, chapter and verse, we shall not find ourselves looking for something to say but we shall be aide to bring th knockdown arguments and clinch them by all the proofs ne cessary, from the Bible, Testament, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Cov enants and Journal ot Discourses as well as other Church works and His tories that are brought to bear as prools in behalf of the religion that G.id bus established through his ser vant the prophet Joseph Smith.
