The "High Council of the Church of Christ" completes its organization in Kirtland, Ohio. Their first order of business is to hear a charge against Curtis Hodges who is accused of "loud speaking and a want of clearness in articulation, which was calculated to do injury to the cause of God." He is accused of preaching so loud that several of people ran to the Church to see if someone was hurt. Hodges says "he had learned more during this trial than he had since he came into the Church" and is forgiven.
