Supposedly one of the earliest "fictional" pieces printed by the Church. In the preface, Abinadi Pratt states, "while purporting to be written under the similitude of a dream or vision, we will state that no such dream or vision was had by the writer, the whole manuscript having been written at Nauvoo, in the Winter of 1843-4. This manuscript was read...in the presence of the Prophet Joseph Smith, but never appeared in print until last spring, in the "Northern Light", when it became at once the admiration of all the Saints who had the privilege of its perusal."

Early Mormon literature from one of the twelve apostles, Parley Pratt. Flake 6559. Very Good Condition / None. Item #1374
