[Joseph Smith]
... notice in Chicago Express that Wm <Hiram> Redding had seen sign of the son of man.— [In addition to printing Redding's statement about seeing the sign of the Son of Man, William Brackett, the editor of the Chicago Express, made an explicit comparison between Redding and JS, suggesting, and then explaining, his conviction that "so far at least as revelations are concerned, we think Joe Smith has his match at last."]]

wrote Editor of Times & Seasons. for No 8. vol 4 that Reding had not seen the sign of the son of man. and he would not come in [18]43— &c ... [In his letter to the editor, JS stated that Christ's second coming would not take place until prophecies of signs preceding the Second Coming were fulfilled.]
