140 years ago today - Apr 28, 1883

John Taylor's revelation concerning "gold and silver and copper and brass and iron" and "a way to raise a fund which should be at your disposal" [Bullion, Beck and Champion Mining Company], and command to organize the School of the Prophets. The revelation also chastises "My servant Thomas" [Taylor, no relation to the church president] concerning the Utah Iron Manufacturing Company. John Taylor presents this to some apostles on 4 Oct. 1883 and to a formal meeting of the First Presidency and Twelve on 11 Oct. 1883. Text available but never cononized or officially published.
