140 years ago today - Apr 3, 1880

Matilda Spaulding, daughter of Solomon Spaulding writes: "he [Solomon Spaulding] read the manuscript which I had seen him writing, to the neighbors, and to the clergyman, a friend of his who came to see him. Some of the names that he mentioned while reading to these people I have never forgotten. They are as fresh to me today as though I heard them yesterday. They were 'Mormon,' 'Maroni,' 'Lamenite,' 'Nephi.'"
