Re-composed copy of a broadsheet issued in 1842 by the Times and Seasons of
Nauvoo, Illinois. The original document has ink showing through one side to the other, making it
difficult to read. It is also a rare document available only at the LDS Historical Department in
Salt Lake City and the Beinecke Library at Yale University. The current facsimile has been re-
typeset for clarity and distribution.
