[Joseph Smith]
Br[other] Draper insisted on leaving the meeting some 2 or 3 weeks since before communion and would not be prevailed upon to tarry a few moments although we invited him to do so as we did not wish to have the house thrown into confusion. He observed that he would not if we excluded him from the Church. To day he attempted to make a confession, but it was not satisfactory to me. I was constrained by the Spirit to deliver him over to the buf[f]etings of Satan untill he should humble himself and repent of his sins and make satisfactory confession before the Church.
