Nauvoo Saints Going West Notice - Archival Print

from 8.00

The Prophet Joseph Smith told the Saints days before his death that they would gather to the "vastness of the Rocky Mountains." Brigham Young told the people to prepare to move west and plans were made to leave peacefully in the spring of 1846. However, mob violence and word that troops were being sent to stop the Saints forced their early departure in the freezing temperatures of February. Broadside leaflets were posted throughout Nauvoo to let those who arrived after the Saints departure to go west.  This piece is printed on heavy stock acid free art paper

NOTICE

TO THOSE MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS TRAVELING 

From Abroad To This City Of Nauvoo: "Beloved Brethren and Friends - We, the High Council of the Church embrace this opportunity to inform you, that your brethren in the Gospel under the heavy and awful strain of evil mobs which have brought all manner of destruction upon the peace of this good city, our homes, and this Holy Temple of our God have, under the banner of heaven and the guiding spirit sent out into the Western country from this place for the safety of our lives and that of our families. We regret our departure before your arrivals. We intended to go some time in the early part of spring, but as circumstances have not permitted, we were forced to abandon our peaceful preparations for the journey and in ranks and companies have gone West until we find a good place to make a crop, to build houses, and prepare for the reception of the good Saints in a revealed valley in the neighborhood of the Rocky Mountains. We pray that we will not be infringed upon, and we shall infringe upon no one. Much of our property is left in the hands of agents for sale at a low rate, for teams, for goods and for cash. Upon your arrival here, be instructed to form companies of pioneers and proceed west across the river and with God’s speed make your way with us. May our houses, our farms, our Holy Temple and all we leave be a monument to those who may visit this place of our faith, industry, diligence and virtue."

The names of Brigham Young & Willard Richards appear at the bottom with those of the Nauvoo high council.
