During the first half of November 1831, JS held a series of conference meetings in Hiram, Ohio, at which the primary business was planning the publication of a compilation of revelations. On 3 November 1831, the day after the first meetings concluded, JS dictated the book’s appendix. This revelation was intended to be the concluding revelation of the Book of Commandments, but the printing office’s destruction by an anti-Mormon mob in July 1833 precluded the text’s publication at that time.
The appendix elaborated on a number of biblical prophecies and invoked a variety of biblical phrases. It reviewed end-time events and highlighted their significance for the church and the world at large.
John Whitmer copied this text into Revelation Book 1, where it is designated “72 Revelation recd Nov 3, 1831.” Sidney Rigdon also produced a copy of this document sometime in November 1831. The 1835 Doctrine and Covenants included this revelation as the appendix or concluding revelation without indicating date or location.
