Joseph petitions the Missouri legislature for justice, claiming "it is not our object to complain—to asperse any one. All we ask is a fair and impartial trial. We ask the sympathies of no one. We ask sheer justice." (History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (7 volumes) 3:247-49.)

[Conkling, Christopher J., Joseph Smith Chronology]
