  • In a letter, John C. Bennett introduces his book History of the Saints and decries the debauchery of the Mormon leaders. Bennett has detailed the attempted assassination of Governor Boggs and has evidence about Joseph Smith’s involvement with Miss Brotherton, Miss Rigdon, Mrs. Pratt, and other women. Bennett quotes from a letter by William Law published in the Times and Seasons boasting the peaceful, law-abiding nature of the Saints; Bennett then cites records that contradict Law’s assertions. Bennett describes Joseph Smith’s scandals: manipulating a Masonic election and undermining the law to acquire a “big deed.” He closes his letter by expressing his desire to be a witness against Joseph Smith.
