Wilford Woodruff reprimands assistant church historian Andrew Jenson for publishing a list of the known plural wives of Joseph Smith. "We do not think it is a wise step to give these names to the world at the present time in the manner in which you have done in this 'Historical Record.' Advantage may be taken of their publication and in some instances, to the injury, perhaps, of families or relatives of those whose names are mentioned."
