Author: King, Hannah Tapfield Title: An Epic Poem: A Synopsis of the Rise of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, from the birth of the Prophet Joseph Smith to the arrival on the spot which the Prophet Brigham Young pronounced to be the site of the future Salt Lake City, Utah Publication: Salt Lake City: Published at the Juvenile Instructor Office, 1884 Edition: First Edition.

Gift inscription on the front free endsheet from the year of publication. Rear free endsheet contains an additional inscription from the year of publication from the inscribee. Both are heartfelt and charming. Now from their homes the Saints were forced to move, and leave Nauvoo, the City which they Love! Their Prophet and Patriarch were slain, And in that place they could not now remain; Unto the Rocky Mountains eyes were turned, And hearts with hope and expectation burned; Joseph had named it as a place of rest For Saints to flee to, where they should be blest; Away from Gentile rule and Gentile rod - And Joseph's word was as the voice of God. To all that people - Brigham at their head, By Joseph's word were all the people led.
