INSTRUCTIONS for President Albert Carrington.

Dear Brother:

You are hereby appointed and authorized to proceed to liverpool, England, to relieve President Franklin D. Richards in the Presidency of the European Mission, and all Missions connected therewith, and to take full charge, oversight, and Presidency thereof in his stead, and to direct, counsel and advise in regard to all persons and affairs connected with said Presidency in such manner as your judgement, the Holy Spirit and advice from us, from time to time may direct for the salvation of the human family, the gathering of Israel and the upbuilding of the Kingdom of God.

To enable our immigration to avail themselves of the healthiest portion or portions of the year for better withstanding the changes of habits, diet and climate, and for other good and sufficient reasons, we wish you to employ none but steamships in forwarding them from your Presidency.

That you may be abundantly blessed in all your efforts to do good, magnify your calling, honor our God, and be greatly instrumental in spreading His Work upon the earth is the prayer of,

Your Brethren in the Gospel,

Brigham Young
Daniel H Wells
