Joseph F. Smith writes to Anthony W. Ivins concerning a post-manifesto plural marriage: "the less I know about some things the better for me at least and perhaps for others concerned.... my motto is and always has been to protect to the uttermost in my power the rights and the secrets, if secrets there may be, of my friends and the friends of the kingdom of God." He adds that he believes in "all the revelations" of the Prophet Joseph Smith, a phrase that becomes a code for polygamy after the Manifesto.
