Mormon Historical Studies
Carole King is the great-granddaugter of Martha Ann Smith Harris who was Joseph F. Smith's sister. Four years after the death of King's father she opened a box he had given her and found letters that Joseph F. Smith had written to his sister. With King's permission, Holzapfel and Whitchurch are editing and annotating the letters to prepare them for publication. A transcription and an image of the first letter Joseph F. Smith wrote to Martha after arriving in the Sandwich Islands for his first mission are included.
