185 years ago today - mid May 1835

At about this time, Solomon W. Denton [a boarder at the Smith home] borrowed two pistols from his boss in the Church printing office, Oliver Cowdery. With these guns Denton reportedly accompanied M. C. Davis to make a murder attempt upon Grandison Newell. The attempt was unsucccessful; exact date unknown.
