185 years ago today - Nov 8, 1831

Sidney refers to "errors or mistakes which are in commandments and revelations, made either by the scribe translation in consequence of the slow way of the scribe at the time of receiving or by the scribes themselves." Joseph will correct the "errors or mistakes which he may discover," and Oliver " Oliver Cowdery shall <copy, correct, and select> all the writings which go forth to the world which go through the Printing press (except) the revelations and commandments, by the Spirit of the Lord and this according to the commandment given in Missouri, July 20, 1831."
