1831 - The Prophet Joseph receives the revelation known as Doctrine and Covenants 69. The revelations that were to be printed as the Book of Commandments in Independence, Missouri, had been prepared and Oliver Cowdery was appointed to take the manuscript and the money that had been collected for the building up of Zion to Missouri. As he was to travel a long distance through unsettled territory, John Whitmer was called to travel with him for safety and support. Today, missionaries travel in pairs for the same reason. (History of the Church, 1:234-235)

1835 - The Prophet Joseph continued his discussions with Robert Matthias, who called himself “Joshua, the Jewish Minister,” who was staying in the Prophet’s home.
