Benjamin took Ben Jr. on his very first fishing trip before the weather turned too cold. He loved hearing about Ben Jr.’s eagerness at school and felt impressed by how much his son had already learned.

John Singer Sargent - Lady with the Rose (1882)
The subject of the painting, (Charlotte) Louise Burckhardt (1862—1892), was the twenty-year-old daughter of a Swiss merchant, members of the artist's cosmopolitan circle in Paris. She was the first wife of the fruit importer ("Banana King") Roger Ackerley, father of the writer J. R. Ackerley; she died after two years of marriage. The monochromatic tones and emphasis on the figure's silhouette are reminiscent of the style of the Spanish painter Diego Velázquez, whose work Sargent had been encouraged to study by his Parisian teacher Carolus-Duran. It was exhibited to great acclaim at the Paris Salon of 1882. (source)

Quote
If we wish to see how far off we are from that standard [of celestial life], we have only to compare our lives, characters, and dispositions with those of our Savior. He is our examplar. Until we become pure in heart as He is, willing to give glory to God, and to love our fellow men, and to cease to backbite one another, cease to tear down and learn to build up, and comfort and bless and benefit the human race. Until we do these things we have a labor before us that we must perform, a journey that we must accomplish.
Orson F. Whitney, Funeral Sermon for Louisa Free Wells, June 20, 1886

The same laws apply to the human body, both spiritual and temporal—(typical of the earth, and typical of the heavens)—the same laws will apply to the individual that apply to the earth upon which we dwell. We are of spirit and of body. Our bodies crumble away, because they are of the earth, earthy. They are a type of death, a type of the temporal; but there is that within us which can not die, which can only be disorganized by the Creator who formed it. It is His will that men should retain their individuality, that these spirits of our own should live, that they should regain possession of the tabernacles which are laid in the ground, crumbling away in mother earth, that they may be sanctified and celestialized like the earth upon which we dwell. For the earth itself has a spirit, just as we have a spirit within us, and that is the spirit world; and the world upon which we stand is the temporal world, or the body of the globe which we inhabit; and God will sanctify this globe and cause it to shine like a sea of glass mingled with fire. It will be celestialized because it transgresses not the law.
Orson F. Whitney, Funeral Sermon for Louisa Free Wells, June 20, 1886
I’m not sure if I buy this cosmology entirely, but this is a really fascinating cosmological outlook and elaboration of D&C 130—I’ve heard “the earth has a soul” as a early Mormon outlook before, but Whitney really develops that conjunction of body and spirit as a shared affinity between human beings and the earth. And the identification of the Earth’s spirit with the spirit world makes me really wonder how much the familiar Plan of Salvation chalkboard lesson outline had developed by 1886. If Whitney’s thinking about the same kind of spirit world when he’s saying this, then it’s really quite the statement! This passage also makes me wonder how we might carry the nineteenth century Mormon idea of the earth having a spirit and the earth’s existence being directly akin and parallel to human existence into a twenty first century Mormon ecological theology.

Quote
We have seasons of great outward prosperity and also those of apparent adversity—when everything appears to be at a standstill and even dead; nature itself, declares it to be a necessary condition…It is as necessary for us to have cloudy weather and rainy weather, as it is that we should have sunshine, in order to bring about the objects of creation, the purposes of nature, and the best interests of the human family. Seeing it is so in temporal, is it strange that it should be the same in spiritual things? No, it is as necessary that we should have difficulties to contend with, in order to make intelligent provision for our spiritual concerns, as it is that we should have the winter frosts and stormy weather to enable us to make discreet provision for our temporal necessities.
Franklin D. Richards, “Opening Remarks,” April 1886 General Conference
