Letter from Robert B. Thompson, 13 May 1839

I beg leave to call your attention to a subject of considerable  importance to our Church, and which if not attended to is calculated (in my humble opinion)  to raise a prejudice in the minds of a considerable portion of the community and destroy  those benevolent and philanthropic feelings which have been manifested towards us as a people  by a large portion of this community: I have reference to the Letters of Bro Lyman Wight [p. 7]
Robert B. Thompson, letter, Quincy, IL, to the First Presidency, 13 May 1839; handwriting of James Mulholland; in JS Letterbook 2, pp. 7, 10–11; JS Collection, CHL.
