185 years ago today - Nov 25, 1834

Section 106, Place: Kirtland, Geauga County, Ohio.

Historical Note: During the month of November 1834, Joseph Smith was occupied in making preparations for the School of the Elders. "No month," he said, "ever found me more busily engaged than November; but as my life consisted of activity and unyielding exertions, I made this my rule: When the Lord commands, do it.".

Section 106 directed Warren A. Cowdery to preside over the branch of the Church in Freedom, Cattaraugus County, New York.

Publication Note. Section 106 was first published as section 99 in the 1835 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants.
