Wilford Woodruff, 4th President of the Church, 1889–1898
In regard to the prophecy Joseph Smith made at Morley Farm that the Church would fill the world, President Woodruff stated: "I want to bear testimony before God, angels and men that mine eyes behold the day, and have beheld for the last fifty years of my life, the fulfillment of that prophecy [made by Joseph Smith on the Morley Farm]. . . . I rejoice at seeing the progress of the work that lies before us. There is a great work before this people in the fulfillment of these prophecies that have been given. Joseph Smith was full of revelation. He foresaw this people, and this work until it was wound up."
Parley P. Pratt, Apostle, 1835–1857
About this time a young
lady, by the name of Chloe Smith, being a member of the
Church, was lying very low with a lingering fever, with a
family who occupied one of the houses on the farm of Isaac
Morley. . . . President Smith and myself, with several other
Elders, called to see her. She was so low that no one had
been allowed for some days previous to speak above a
whisper. . . . We kneeled down and prayed vocally all
around, each in turn; after which President Smith arose,
went to the bedside, took her by the hand, and said unto her
with a loud voice, "in the name of Jesus Christ arise and
walk!" She immediately arose . . . and from that minute she
was perfectly restored to health.
