185 years ago today - Jul 27, 1837

At Painesville, Joseph is "detained all day by malicious and vexatious law suits." As they were about to return to Kirtland, the sherriff arrests Joseph on a writ by a salesman who had placed a stove in his home as part of a promotion, but Joseph refused to pay for it. After leaving his watch for surety, "we all returned home."
