DEAR SAINTS AND FELLOW COUNTRYMEN,-We hereby present to you the third volume, and the last also, of the PROPHET, giving our warmest thanks for the support you have given to him. Not because he cannot come to you again, is the cause for his suspension; but we consider that by now he deserves to go to his “resting place,” since he has run his race, and kept the faith. From now on we intend to trumpet after you in ZION’S TRUMPET, shouting every month, “Come out of her, my people.” Frequent mention will be made of the excellencies of Zion, and the law that will come forth from there, together with the best route for everyone to go toward that country. Now, may you listen to the TRUMPET as you did to the PROPHET; and show your respect for the latter by buying for him the best leather clothes, so that he will be handsome in his place and in his appearance.
