Shortly after his baptism, Dan Jones was called to return to Wales to serve a mission, which he began in 1845. He immediately began publishing treatises and pamphlets, which were printed on his brother's press. During the work, one of the press employees, John Davis, was converted. After Jones was released from his mission in 1848, Davis was selected to oversee printing activities in Wales. In 1851, he printed biweekly signatures of the Doctrine and Covenants in Welsh, which were distributed with "Zion's Trumpet." By the end of the year, he was ready to print a Welsh Book of Mormon. The first signature was released in September 1851, and the last signature was completed thirty-one weeks later in April 1852.
