185 years ago today - Feb 4, 1838

Oliver Cowdery writes to his brothers Warren and Lyman: "The radical principles taught by Messrs. Smith and Rigdon here [are] subversion of the liberties of the whole church.- I told them if I had property, while I live and was sane, I would not be dictated, influenced, or controlled by any man or set of men, by no tribunal of ecclesiastical pretenses whatsoever.- My soul is sick of such scrambling for power and self-aggrandisement.- I came to this country to enjoy peace. If I cannot I shall go where I can."
