Joe Smith's Hate For Independent Journalists - 1841
The Warsaw Signal – June 2, 1841
A New Revelation, from Joe Smith, the Mormon Prophet,
for the especial benefit of the Editor of the "WARSAW SIGNAL."
In our paper of week before last, we took
occasion to express an honest opinion in relation to the Mormons, and some of
their leaders -- an opinion which we believe is concurred in by nine-tenths of
the community. No sooner, however, had our paper reached Nauvoo, than it caused
the following highly important revelation to be forwarded us, from his holiness,
NAUVOO, Ill., May 26, 1841.
Mr. Sharp, Editor of the Warsaw Signal:
SIR: -- You will discontinue my paper; its contents are calculated to pollute me. And to patronize that filthy sheet, that tissue of lies, that sink of iniquity, is disgraceful to any moral man. Yours with utter contempt.
P. S. -- Please publish the above in your contemptible paper.
Now, as one good turn deserves another, we annex below, for the benefit of the aforesaid Prophet, a revelation from our books, in this wise
June 2, 1841.
JOSEPH SMITH, Prophet, &c., &c.
To Sharp & Gamble, DR.
To one year's subscription to Western World, $3.00.
Come, Josey, fork over, and for mercy's sake don't get a revelation that it is not to be paid. For if thou dost, we will send a prophet after thee mightier than thou.
