[Joseph Smith Diary] A large majority of the Saints in Kirtland have and are arriving here [Missouri] every day. Kirtland has been broken up by those who have professed the name of Latter Day Saints and have denied the faith which they once preached and by their preaching gathered many Saints into this land, and now have betrayed them. O Justice where hast thou fled And thou administrations whither hast thou concealed thyself.
