Description

Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 4: A Monthly Magazine of Home Literature; Represents the Young Men's and Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement Associations of the Latter-Day Saints; May, 1883 Having completed his Southern mis sion in 1842, Elder Grant returned to Nauvoo. He left the-kind hearted peo ple of Virginia with tears in their eyes. They had learned the principles of life from his utterances and daily example, and loved him as the messenger of heaven sent to save them. For five days previous to his departure, a protracted series of meetings was held at Burk's Garden, when hundreds attended and the Elders were kept busy preaching to the large congregations, and baptizing and confirming converts. In June, 1843, Brother Grant went to Philadelphia to preside over the Church there. He remained in that city, making many valued friends and officiating in the duties of his office, until March, 1844, when he again reached Nauvoo. His stay, however, was short, for on the 9th of the following May he started, in com pany with Elders Woodruff and George A. Smith, on a preaching expedition through Illinois, the intention being to continue the tour eastward through sev eral States. From this mission, how ever, he was suddenly recalled, and was in Nauvoo at the time of the martyrdom of the Prophets, on the 27th of June.
