180 years ago today - Mar 8, 1843

Heber C. Kimball preaches and "made use of the figure of the Potter and clay, and showed that O[rson] Pratt was stiff and had to be cast off the wheel and A[masa] Lyman put on it." Pratt was upset after learning that Joseph Smith had proposed plural marriage to his wife, Sarah, during Pratt's absence on a mission.

Kimball marries Thirty-seven-year-old Joseph Smith to 22-year-old Eliza Partridge who becomes his 20th wife. Joseph married her 19-year-old sister Emily four days earlier.
