190 years ago today - Mar 26, 1830

Within a few days [of the first printing of the Book of Mormon] Martin Harris is on the streets of Palmyra, trying to sell copies for $1.25. Harris is by now legally separated from his wife. As soon as the books are printed, Solomon Chamberlain takes eight or ten copies and goes on a preaching mission, selling one. On this mission he meets Brigham and Phinehas Young at a reformed Methodist conference.
