185 years ago today - Jun 2, 1838

Rhoda Richards (sister of Apostle Willard Richards) and subsequently a plural wife of Joseph Smith recorded in her journal that when she was baptized a member of the LDS church on 2 June 1838 "In obeying the commands of the Lord I found great good. Health was improved, poison disappeared, the cake of ice was melted from my stomach. I found no need of Thomsonian medicine."

[Quinn, D. Michael, "The Practice of Rebaptism at Nauvoo," BYU Studies (1978), 18:2:226]
