180 years ago today - Thursday, Apr 18, 1844

This day President Joseph [Smith] introduced J[oseph] W. Coolidge and D[avid] S. Hollister and added L[yman] Wight's name, and then declared the council full. The names as they now stand of those who have called upon to form the grand Kingdom of God by revelation are as follows: [50 names listed] ... much precious instructions were given and it seems like heaven began on earth and the power of God is with us.

[William Clayton journal, 129-31, as quoted in Jedediah S. Rogers (editor), The Council of Fifty: A Documentary History, Signature Books (2014)]
