Title Gentile Account, page 124
Description City knew how to concoct it. She had ordered one as a wedding present-to her husband's last wife! The wife had kept a piece of it that "we" might see whether it was not true, that it would remain good for many years. The first wife gives the husband to the new one. I cannot realise how she can bring herself to do so. Wednesday Jan 23. Looking in the Mormon Book of Doctrines and Covenants I see that "Joseph" [Smith] gets over the diffi- culty that may arise from the stubbornness of other Emma's [his wife], by a revelation to the effect that if she refuse[d] her consent to a plural marriage on her husband's part, he shall still go forward and marry. 112 That is his duty; and as she refuses to do hers, all the penalties that are the consequence must fall upon her head. These are purely spiritual I believe, and room for repentance is offered. For Joseph dearly loved Emma, there is no doubt; and if the stubborn woman would yield her consent to the genuineness of the Polygamic Revelation the Mormons would count no offering too great to be laid at her feet. How curious it is, that she [Emma] persists in denying it, and yet is equally staunch in her assertion of the genuineness of her husband's mission in other respects.1'3 tr?IIoctrine and Covenunt.i (Kirtland, Ohio: LDS Ch urch, 1835), section 132, and also section 131. ttjAl1 her life, Emma Smith denied Joseph Smith ever advocated or practiced polygamy. When the church members moved west under Brigham Young, she remained in Nauvoo with her children. Sixteen years later she helped establish the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, with her son Joseph Smith as president, claiming church authority went from father to son. She married Lewis Bidamon in 1847 and died in 1879. 124
