Counsel for October

The following comes from W. W. Phelps, Almanac for the Year 1859: The Third after Leap Year; and after the 6th of April, Thirtieth year of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Great Salt Lake City, UT: J. McKnight, 1859), 12:
OCTOBER is nearly the end of annual outfitting. Fruit, grain, meat, sauce, wood and clothes, with a receipt from the Tithing office, ought to be in their proper place, ready for the cool head of winter, that often tries the recess of a stone. Pleasure is good, but PLENTY is better; and so he that keepeth the commandments of the Lord is blessed.
