185 years ago today - Jun 26, 1835

At Joseph's request, the Painesville Telegraph publishes court testimony regarding an altercation between Joseph Smith and his brother-in-law Calvin Stoddard. Calvin says Joseph has apologized for striking him on the forehead with the flat of his hand. The apology has been accepted and Joseph is acquitted. [This occurs when Joseph & Calvin were water witching together.]
