Description first interview with Joseph SmithFg-they oftenest speak of him as "Joseph" or "Brother Joseph" "I thought him the image of everything prepossessing and noble. I felt to be thankful that I had lived to a wonderful day when God was again commu- nicating with man." Brigham Young described his first visit to him [Joseph]. "I had received the testimony before," he said, "but I wanted to see him. I felt I would know him to be the man. I went with my brother Phineas and Heber C. Kimball to old man Smith's [Joseph Smith Sr.`s] and f ound neither of the sons at home, but he said the boys were in the woods. Accordingly we went about a quarter of a mile to where Jos. & Hyrum were, following the tracks of their woodsled through a light snow that was melting. They had just felled a tree, and Joseph greeted us pleasantly, and asked us if we could handle an axe. We then took hold one after another, and got the branches off and the tree cut up into logs very soon, and work being over for the day he invited us home to talk. We attended a meeting in the evening too, and I was fully satisfied." A simple picture of no ordinary scene, the first meeting of two men whose influence sways so absolutely a people [space left for a figure to add to three zeros] of men women and children; far more disciples than Mahomet was followed by in as many years. I forget what came next, but after Mrs. Snow had been mentioned as being Beaman's daughter, I asked some question `XJoseph Smith, the founding prophet and first president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints organized in 1830, died at the hands of a mob in Carthage, Illinois, June 27, 1844. 71
