McIlwaine's Bend, Missouri River. Doctrine and Covenants 61. ... On August 9, Joseph and ten elders leave Independence Landing for Kirtland. They travel fourteen miles by canoe to Fort Osage the first day.

W. W. Phelps vision of the destroyer on the waters/Nothing very important occurred till the third day, when many of the dangers so common upon the western waters, manifested themselves; and after we had encamped upon the bank of the river, at McIlwaine's Bend, brother Phelps, in open vision, by daylight, saw the destroyer in his most horrible power, ride upon the face of the waters. Others heard the noise, but saw not the vision. ...

The next morning after prayer, Joseph receives this revelation.
