Parker Pratt Robison

Dear Brother Robison:

When in the mission field I found the little book called ORSON PRATT’S WORKS, one of the most powerful evidences in defense of Gospel Truth. We use to refer it to as ‘a kill or a cure’ and there are instances in my experiences where ministers who read it confessed that they could no longer teach their doctrines even though they were not willing to come into the Church.

Very respectfully yours,

Joseph Fielding Smith
