148 "And it came to pass that we took our course after having traveled much in the wilderness toward the Land of Zarahemla; 149 And when the Lamanites saw that they were marching toward the Land of Zarahemla, They were exceeding fraid, lest there was a plan laid to lead them on to destruction; Therefore, they began to retreat into the wilderness again, yea, even back by the same way which they had come. 150 "And behold, it was night and they did pitch their tents; For the chief captains of the Lamanites supposing that the Nephites were weary because of their march, And supposing that they had driven their whole army, Therefore, they took no thought concerning the City of Manti. 151 "Now it came to pass that when it was night, that I caused that my men should not sleep, But that they should march forward by another way toward the Land of Manti; 152 And because of this our march in the nighttime, behold, on the morrow, we were beyond the Lamanites, insomuch that we did arrive before them to the City of Manti. 153 "And thus it came to pass that by this stratagem, we did take possession of the City of Manti without the shedding of blood. 154 "And it came to pass that when the armies of the Lamanites did arrive near the city and saw that we were prepared to meet them, They were astonished exceedingly and struck with great fear, insomuch that they did flee into the wilderness. 155 "Yea, and it came to pass that the armies of the Lamanites did flee out of all this quarter of the land; 156 But behold, they have carried with them many women and children out of the land; 157 And those cities which had been taken by the Lamanites, all of them are at this period of time in our possession; And our fathers and our women and our children are returning to their homes, All, save it be those which have been taken prisoners and carried off by the Lamanites. 158 "But behold, our armies are small to maintain so great a number of cities and so great possessions. 159 "But behold, we trust that our God who hath given us victory over those lands, Insomuch that we have obtained those cities and those lands which were our own- 160 "For we do not know the cause that the government does not grant us more strength; Neither do those men which came up unto us know why we have not received greater strength; 161 Behold, we do not know but what ye are unsuccessful, And ye have drawn away the forces into that quarter of the land; If so, we do not desire to murmur; 162 And if it is not so, behold, we fear that there is some faction in the government that they do not send more men to our assistance; For we know that they are more numerous than that which they have sent; 163 But behold, it mattereth not- "We trust God will deliver us notwithstanding the weakness of our armies, Yea, and deliver us out of the hands of our enemies. 164 "Behold, this is the twenty and ninth year, in the latter end, And we are in the possession of our lands; And the Lamanites have fled to the Land of Nephi. 165 "And those sons of the people of Ammon, of which I have so highly spoken, are with me in the City of Manti; And the Lord hath supported them, yea, and kept them from falling by the sword, insomuch that even one soul hath not been slain. 166 "But behold, they have received many wounds; Nevertheless, they stand fast in that liberty wherewith God hath made them free; 167 And they are strict to remember the Lord their God from day to day; Yea, they do observe to keep His statutes and His judgments and His commandments continually; And their faith is strong in the prophecies concerning that which is to come. 168 "And now my beloved brother Moroni, that the Lord our God who hath redeemed us and made us free may keep you continually in His presence,
