Mormonism Unveiled : Or, a peep into the principles & practices of the Latter-day Saints
Excerpt from Mormonism Unveiled: Or a Peep Into the Principles Practices of the Patter-Ddan Saints
The following pages are intended to shew the detestable proceedings of the Disciples of J oseph-smith, the founder of the sect of the Mormons, and the delusion and sufferings of the victims of the leaders of the self styled Latter-day Saints, at the city of the Salt Lake, Utah. They are not written With an attempt at language, but with a view to depict faith fully what the writer saw and heard, during a nine months' residence among them. It is a plain unvarnished tale and the only object in its publication is, if possible, to deter others from being duped by the inducements held out by these' specious deceivers; who have so far beguiled an immense number of unthinking, credulous, and enthusiastic people, as to be enabled to live in luxurious indolence on the earnings extorted from their infatuated followers, and to give' full scope to their demoralizing and unprincipled propensities.
