; THE MARTYRDOM OF JOSEPH SMITH by President John Taylor is probably the most complete and detailed account of the events at Carthage which took the lives of Joseph and Hyrum Smith. An eyewitness and participant, President Taylor elaborates on the activities leading to imprisonment; the Prophet's foreboding of pending death; the various visits and conversations which took place in the jail; and the petitions and correspondence with Governor Ford discussing those events and the promise of state protection. This is a very personalized and readable account. THE MORMONS was an address by Col. Thomas L. Kane delivered before the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in 1850. Although Col. Kane was not a member of the LDS Church, he was sympathetic to the misrepresentations against and the persecutions suffered by the Saints. He wrote, "I have not yet heard the single charge against them as a community - against their habitual purity of life, their integrity of dealing, their toleration of religious differences in opinion, their regard for the laws, or their devotion to the constitutional government under which we live - that I do not, from my own observation, or the testimony of others, know to be unfounded.
