I feel that we as saints can hail with joy each new year, knowing as we do know, that each one will bring about great changes for the good and welfare of the Israel of our God, and each one brings us nearer our redeemprtion, which God will surely give unto us in His own due time, and may this present one bring about liberty for the saints of God, if that would be for our best good.
~ William Paxman
by the blessings of God, they improved much in the course of their labors, this mention is made to show that they were blessed and inspired of the Lord for the work they had been appointed and set apart to perform. We feel that when the revision is completed that there will be a very good and correct translation, one that will be quite plain, and will convey to the minds of the Maori people the meaning in the same plainness and simplicity and with the same accuracy, the glorious truths contained in that devine record, that our edition does to us.
~ William Paxman
We have recently returned from a three mounths trip to the north part of the Island, and are very thank- ful to be able to state that the great majority of the Saints, are endeavoring to live in accordance with the principles of the Gospel, and they manifest quite a love for the truth, as also for the servants of God, and awe are able to see a marked improvement in their con- dition
~ William Paxman

we are also quite in- terested in Utah being admitted into Statehood, if that is the will of our Heavenly Father, truly these are most peculiar times, yet, at the same time we are led to rejoice at seeing so visable the hand of God
~ William Paxman
It is also most gratifying to know that the Lord has so wonderfully preserved the leaders of Israel from imprisonment, while such strenuous effort are being made to capture them, surely we are led to praise God all the day long. It truly is a "day of shaking" and one that is increasing the faith of the saints in the living God, and preparing us for the day of seperation, draw- ing the deviding line. What a consolation to know that Our Heavnly Father, Joseph, Hyrum, Brigham and John with all the holy Prophets and Apostles that have lived upon the earth, is on our side, and will advocate our cause, and bring about our deliverance in the appointed time of the Lord.
~ William Paxman
