“[T]he day of your deliverance is not far distant, for the judgements of the Lord are already abroad in the earth, and the cold hand of death, will soon pass through your neighborhood, and sweep away some of your most bitter enemies … the day is fast hastening on when the restoration of all things shall be fulfilled.”

Joseph Smith – 28 August 1830, letter to Colesville, N.Y. LDS members, in Newel Knight’s Journal. See Dan Vogel, Early Mormon Documents – Volume 1 (Salt Lake City, UT: Signature Books, 1996), 132-134.
