190 years ago today - 1830 11-16 April

A Fayette, New York, branch of the church is established. Cowdery delivers the first public discourse of the church and performs baptisms. A revelation is received regarding individuals who have been baptized in other Christian churches (BC 23; LDS D&C 22; RLDS D&C 20). [Joseph Smith is a hesitant speaker and typically assigns other to make major sermons up through 1839]
