180 years ago today - Aug 12, 1840

Father John Smith Informed us in his letter of some remarkable Signs that lately appeared among the Saints viz on the 14th of June 1840. On Sunday five <[-]> men members of the Church saw two men ride across the Missisippi River from Montrose to Nauvoo. One man was on a white horse & the other on a bay or red horse. The waters parted under their feet & fire flew when their tails moved & they observed the clothing of the men. A few month previous to this a man was seen walking across the river by several believers & others. The Unbeleivers said Probably a mormon was going across to steal sumthing. This is the effect that Signs have on those that Seek them.
