The Mormon Problem : An Appeal to the American People
Phillips & Hunt
The defenders of Mormonism will find enough to do in explaining away, if they can, the citations of Mormon authorities and the facts of Mormon history contained in this volume. I commend them to the task.
To all others the work is submitted as an effort to throw light upon a question of national interest and importance, and to assist the citizens of this country in determining the measure of their responsibility in the matter. Of these indulgence is craved for the imperfections of the book, and a Careful consideration of its contents is asked.
The work is the result of thirteen years of careful study and research, four of which were spent in Utah ; and the author trusts that his sources of information have been sufficiently extensive and reliable to entitle his conclusions to the study and confidence of the people.
