Here we united in prayer and held a council and unitedly felt that it was the will of God that Elder Young should go immediately to Manchester to assist in publishing a collection of hymns … and also to immediately print and finish 3000 copies of the Book of Mormon. … We walked from the hill into the valley and took the parting hand with Elder Young, who started for Manchester. We, Elder Richards and myself, tarried and preached at Wind Point.” (Wilford Woodruff in Times and Seasons, 20 May 1840.)
