[Brigham Young]
The President then made some remarks on the book entitles '"Joseph Smith and his Progenitors,'" [by Lucy Mack Smith] requesting those who had copies to let him have them, and receive value for them if they desired it. [Young was unhappy with some of the content of the book and sought to prevent its circulation]
