Page 309 - We will fight for the ideals and sacred things of the City both alone and with many. We will revere and obey the City's laws and do our best to incite a like respect and reverence in those above us who are prone to annul or set them at naught.
Page 117 - If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her.
