[Franklin D. Richards]
Bro[ther]. John Rushton favored me with a view of the 'Seer Stone' which he became possessed of in Nauvoo [Illinois] & related how & where he found it. Says it is part of one of the stones that Jared's brother 'Mahonri Moriancumr' asked the Lord to touch that theymight give light to those in the Barges while they should cross the Sea.
