180 years ago today - late Jul 1833

D. P. Hurlbut's lecture tour in PA took him south through Erie county, to Jacksonville and Elk Creek. Here his relative and foremer co-religionist, Benjamin Winchester, attended one of Hurlbut's anti-Mormon addresses. Hurlbut no doubt took advantage of being in the home area of Lyman Jackson and his family and questioned them more closely about claims that Solomon Spalding had written a large part of the Book of Mormon text.
