[Wilford Woodruff]

I read [William] Millers lectures [father of Adventist sects] on the Coming of Christ & the Millenniul & on a variety of other subjects such as the vissions of Ezekiel, Daniel & John, the beast opening the seals &c. & he has made out as much of a whole sail business in spirituallizing the scriptures & trying to make out the fulfillment of all predictions of the old & new Testiment by refering to the French Government & other afairs which was as foreign from the subject as Heaven is from Hell, & among many other absurdities his declaration is that the Turkish empire & Government will be destroyed in (1840) & the Second Coming of Christ will be in 1843.
