21 page articles from The Saints' Advocate on the abomination of polygamy. Brother Derry states, "Knowing the tenacity with which the people of Utah cling to the Bible as authority in behalf of polygamy, I have concluded to give the Bible history of that abomination, and show that there is no evidence in that sacred volume that it was ever given as a means of salvation or exaltation in the kingdom of God; and further, that the instances of its practice present no evidence of divine sanction, much less of divine appointment. I shall also refer to its history in the Book of Mormon."

Sermon on polygamy given on November 7, 1920 at the RLDS Stone Church, Independence, Missouri, USA. Walter Smith states, "I have spoken to a great many people and I have talked with those who were living at Nauvoo, not in great numbers, because they were thinning out by the time I came along; but I have talked to quite a considerable number, all of whom testify personally to knowing that Joseph Smith was not responsible for this doctrine. Think of the ridiculous situation with which we are confronted. We meet people who testify that they were Joseph Smith's wives, but when we inquire deeply into the matter we find that the marriage ceremony takes place in Salt Lake City and that Brigham Young or some other person stood proxy for Joseph Smith. There is no way in the world to save a man's reputation from such calumny. It is really quite, ridiculous." 6 pages in length.
Was Joseph Smith A Polygamist, 1899 Was Joseph Smith A Polygamist, 1899 (PDF)
by Heman C. Smith
Pamphlet which discusses the claims of two women, Zina D. Huntington Young and Emily D. Partridge Young who assert they were plural wives of Joseph Smith, Jr. Both claims are refuted in this pamphlet. It goes on to give evidence of the falsehood of the revelation on polygamy and further states, "That there is not nor has been any progeny of Joseph Smith except by his legal wife, Emma Hale, whom he married January 18, 1827."
