180 years ago today - Apr 22, 1843

[William Clayton]

In the evening conversed with Margt Moon on the priesthood [IE polygamy. He would marry her five days later]. Had a visit from Olive, Diantha, & Lorin Far.

During the week Prest Joseph made a remark from which I gathered the following he was speaking of the meaning of the world Terrestrial which signifies the rolling of kingdoms, or in other words the rolling of a combination of kingdoms. The telestial is the rolling of one kingdom or globe only. And hence the celestial is the rolling of all the kingdoms of God which is the greatest of all glories.
