A Book of Mormons, p. 211; “When Pratt returned from a mission to Great Britain, he found that Church leaders had withdrawn his wife’s food allotment and were accusing her of adultery with John C. Bennett. She countered that Joseph Smith had proposed she become one of his ‘celestial wives,’ and that Brigham Young had urged her to say nothing, but ‘do as Joseph wished.’” – Richard S. Van Wagoner and Steven C. Walker
“THE MORMONS IN NAUVOO – Three Letters from William Law on Mormonism.
I saw nothing wrong until after the city charter was obtained. A change was soon apparent; the laws of the country were set at defiance and although outwardly everything was smooth, the under current was most vile and obnoxious. Time revealed to me and to many others much that we had not even suspected. We were kept in the dark as long as possible and held up before the public as examples of the Mormon people. Well, you know what followed.

Joseph Smith: The Choice Seer, Chapter 25; “Revelation, the Prophet taught, was to be immediate and personal. We have no right, he explained, to lay claim to promises made to another people in another time. As their curses are not our curses, so their promises are not our promises (see Ibid., p. 12). “Reading the experience of others, or the revelations given to them, can never give us a comprehensive view of our condition and true relation to God. Knowledge of these things can only be obtained by experience through the ordinances of God set forth for that purpose. Could you gaze into heaven five minutes, you would know more than you would by reading all that ever was written on the subject.” (Ibid., p. 324; emphasis in original.)” – Joseph Fielding McConkie, Also see Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 324
