190 years ago today - Oct 13, 1831

The first attack by a Mormon apostate is published when Ezra Booth's letters to the Ohio Star are printed through Dec. 8. They are republished in the first anti-Mormon book, Mormonism Unvailed. Booth makes reference to the revelation on polygamy, and to the twelve unordained apostles of the church.
