“He Said Unto the People”

Did Jacob’s command, “gather together on the morrow, for … I desire to speak unto the people before I shall die” (Jacob 7:16) imply that all the Nephites were living within a day’s journey of the temple? Did the “multitude” which gathered the next day include all of the Nephites? Does this in any way indicate the size of Nephite lands? [Alan C. Miner, Personal Notes]
