Nathan Pratt’s Illness


Joseph the Prophet writes:

I arrived at the Assembly Room about noon, found all present, except Hyrum and his wife; he had slipped and turned his knee joint backward and sprained his large muscle, and I had been ministering to him and Emma had been unwell during the night. After the meeting was organized, W.W. Phelps read my “Appeal to the Green Mountain boys,” which was dedicated by prayer after all had spoken upon it; we also prayed for Nathan Pratt, who was very sick, Hyrum and others, I afterwards instructed them in the things of the priesthood.
