Joe Smith's Hate For Independent Journalists - 1841

The Warsaw Signal June 2, 1841

Highly Important!!

A New Revelation, from Joe Smith, the Mormon Prophet,
for the especial benefit of the Editor of the "WARSAW SIGNAL."

In our paper of week before last, we took occasion to express an honest opinion in relation to the Mormons, and some of their leaders -- an opinion which we believe is concurred in by nine-tenths of the community. No sooner, however, had our paper reached Nauvoo, than it caused the following highly important revelation to be forwarded us, from his holiness, the Prophet.

                                                 NAUVOO, Ill., May 26, 1841.
Mr. Sharp, Editor of the Warsaw Signal:

SIR: -- You will discontinue my paper; its contents are calculated to pollute me. And to patronize that filthy sheet, that tissue of lies, that sink of iniquity, is disgraceful to any moral man.     Yours with utter contempt.
                                  JOSEPH SMITH.

P. S. -- Please publish the above in your contemptible paper.
                  J.S.


Now, as one good turn deserves another, we annex below, for the benefit of the aforesaid Prophet, a revelation from our books, in this wise

                              Warsaw, ILL., June 2, 1841.
JOSEPH SMITH, Prophet, &c., &c.

                             To Sharp & Gamble,      DR.

To one year's subscription to Western World, $3.00.


Come, Josey, fork over, and for mercy's sake don't get a revelation that it is not to be paid. For if thou dost, we will send a prophet after thee mightier than thou.
