John Samuel Thompson, a teacher at the Palmyra Academy announced:

“[Jesus appeared] in a glare of brightness, exceeding tenfold the brilliancy of the meridian [noonday] Sun. And that he came to me, saying: ‘I commission you to go and tell mankind that I am come; and bid every man to shout victory.’”

John Samuel Thompson, The Christian Guide (Utica, NY: A.G. Dauby, 1826), 71.
