I wish this to be read at the funeral, providing that if I should die anywhere in the mountains, I desire the above directions respecting my place of burial to be observed; but if I should live to go back with the Church to Jackson County, I wish to be buried there.
President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
Sunday, November 9th, 1873,
Salt Lake City, Utah.
