Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 8: A Monthly Magazine; March, 1887 The Jewish nation have been scattered abroad among the gentiles for a long period; and in our estimation the time of the commencement of their return to the Holy Land has already arrived. '36 It is highly important, in our opinion, that the present views and move ments of the Jewish people be sought after, and laid before the American people for their con sideration, their profit and their learning. The above is an extract from a letter of appointment given to Orson Hyde by President Joseph Smith, at the conclu sion of the April conference of 1840, at which Elder Hyde had been called to go on a mission to Jerusalem. It appears that Apostle Hyde in a heavenly vision saw himself on the Mount of Olives, blessing the land for the return of the people of Judah, hence, that he might be obedient to the vision, he was appointed to go to that land for the purpose mentioned. On the 1sth of the same month that Apostle Hyde was called, he left his family at Nauvoo and started for Jerusalem without purse or script. The next day he met with Elder John E. Page who subsequently to the conference at which Apostle Hyde had been called, was appointed to go with him to the Holy Land.
