“I was then really ‘the bosom friend and companion of the Prophet Joseph.’ …Sometimes when at my house I asked him questions relating to past, present and future; …one of which I will relate: I asked where the nine and a half tribes of Israel were. ‘Well,’ said he, ‘you remember the old caldron or potash kettle you used to boil maple sap in for sugar, don’t you?’ I said yes. ‘Well,’ said he, ‘they are in the north pole in a concave just the shape of that kettle. And John the Revelator is with them, preparing them for their return.’”
