The index in Revelation Book 2 specifies that the revelation was for John Murdock. (Revelation Book 2, Index, [1].)  


thou art called to go unto the eastern countries3

“Eastern countries” denoted long-settled areas in eastern states such as New York. Following this revelation, Murdock preached mainly in Geauga County, Ohio, for several months before traveling to New York (or what he termed “the eastern country”) in April 1833. (Murdock, Journal, Feb.–Mar. 1832.)  


from house to house and from Village to Village and from City to City4

A March 1832 revelation appointing Jared Carter to serve a mission used similar language: “my Servant Jerad should go again into the eastern countries from place, to place, and from City, City.” (Revelation, 12 Mar. 1832 [D&C 79:1]; see also Revelation, 25 Jan. 1832–A [D&C 75:18].)  


to proclaim mine everlasting Gospel unto the in habitants thereof in the midst of persicution and wickedness and whoso receiveth you receiveth me5
