Orson Pratt sermon on First Vision: "Here was Joseph Smith, a boy…he was only between fourteen and fifteen years of age…Would he stand forth and bear testimony that he had seen with his own eyesa messenger of light and glory, and that he heardthe words of his mouth as they dropped from hislips and had received a message from the MostHigh, at that early age? And then…to have the finger of scorn pointed at him… 'No visions in our day, no angels come in our day…' and still continue to testify…that God had sent his angel from heaven."
