In early 1891, Charles Lowell Walker of St. George wrote, "Some say and have written that great things are to happen . . . in this year 1891. Yea, dire and dreadful things are to transpire. Some even declare that Christ will come and the Millennial Reign inaugurated."
…Future apostle Franklin D. Richards, present in Nauvoo, recorded: "He is therefore now 37 years old last Dec, which leaves 48 years yet to transpire until the time of Promise that Joseph should see Christ."
