170 years ago today - Saturday, Jan 6, 1849

... I [Brigham Young] attended council, when the following resolutions were passed: ... that the Kirtland Bank bills be put into circulation for the accommodation of the people, thus fulfilling the prophecy of Joseph, that the Kirtland notes would one day be as good as gold.

[Historian's Office history, as quoted in Jedediah S. Rogers (editor), The Council of Fifty: A Documentary History, Signature Books (2014)]
