Journal Entry

December 29, 1840 ~ Tuesday

29th Elder Kimball went to take a sitting
for his portrait I staid at home & wrote
I sent G. A. Smith a letter a paper called
The Penny Satirist containing a long account
about the Latter Day Saints taken from
the Mill Star We attended meeting at the
Academy called & spent a short time with Mr
Album, & returned home, & I dreamed of
being in the midst of serpents, & a Tiger came
& guarded me in the midst of my Enemies
I next went through Samuel Demming's
Barns to find Brother Azmon Woodruff
I thought I saw him there. I dreamed of seeing
Brother Azmon & Thompson much of late I
think I shall soon hear from them
