A letter in the Deseret News from Wilford Woodruff mentions a meeting for citizens of Fillmore, Utah, on January 3, 1856: “Elder E. T. Benson closed with an address, bore testimony to what had been said, exhorted the people to prove themselves true in the church and kingdom of God, and trust in the Lord for their reward” (Deseret News, 12 Jan 1856 ; or Journal History, 3 Jan. 1856, p. 1).
