Letter to Vienna Jacques, 4 September 1833

Vienna Jacques was an unmarried woman who joined the church in the Boston area in 1832 before immigrating to Missouri the next year. While traveling west, she visited Kirtland, Ohio, and while there was invited to consecrate her assets to the church. Jacques’s contribution was of great assistance at a time of financial struggle, for which JS promised her the blessings of God. The letter also contained JS’s views of the difficulties that had occurred in Missouri.
Frederick G. Williams transcribed this letter. It was sent from Kirtland, Ohio, to Jacques at Independence, Missouri. A portion of the page, which likely contained JS’s signature, has been removed.
