Notice, August 1837

To the brethren and friends of the  church of Latter Day Saints, I am dis posed to say a word relative to the bills  of the Kirtland Safety Society Bank.  I hereby warn them to beware of spec ulators, renegadoes and gamblers, who  are duping the unsuspecting and the  unwary, by palming upon them, those  bills, which are of no worth, here. I  discountenance and disapprove of any  and all such practices. I know them  to be detrimental to the best interests of  society, as well as to the principles of  religion.
