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."
Was Joseph Smith Ordained By Peter, James And John To The Melchisedec Priesthood [from The Saints' Herald vol. 46], 1899 Was Joseph Smith Ordained By Peter, James And John To The Melchisedec Priesthood [from The Saints' Herald vol. 46], 1899 (PDF)

Article on the ordination of Joseph Smith, Jr. and Oliver Cowdery by Peter, James and John to the Melchisedec Priesthood. "If language means anything, Joseph Smith was as much ordained and confirmed by the laying on of the hands of Peter, James, and John, to the Melchisedec priesthood as Joseph and Oliver were ordained to the Aaronic priesthood….God does not change his law concerning ordination nor his rule of conferring priesthood authority upon man."
What Became Of Christ's Church [Audio Sermon] What Became Of Christ's Church [Audio Sermon], n.d. (mp3)
by Evan A. Fry
16 minute sermon by Evan A. Fry. He states, "There is a startling unanimity of opinion among church historians that before three centuries had passed, the church which still claimed to be the church of Christ bore slight resemblance to the original. The conversion of the Emperor Constantine lifted Christianity from the status of a persecuted or tolerated religion to the status of a popular, court-favored, state religion…Paganism took over the Christian church. Henceforth, it was only a matter of time until church and state combined into one entity. Then the offices in the church, which had once been filled by the Spirit of God speaking through godly men set in the church, began to be filled by political maneuverings and secular appointments. Priesthood began to seek after the titles, the dress, and the emoluments of worldly princes and to forget their earlier ideals of service, humility, and unswerving morality. To put it bluntly, and yet as kindly as we may, we believe that the church went into apostasy."

Contains resolutions adopted at a conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, held at Beloit, Wisconsin, USA on the 12th and 13th of June, 1852, as well as information for the scattered Saints. "Thus, brethren and sisters in captivity, in behalf of said Conference, and the Church of God, we address you, and despite the influence of opposing powers, point you to the source from whence cometh deliverance; We are not of those who seek after new paths, but the old: from which, in the dark and cloudy day we have strayed; for surely, the voice of the Lord is unto us, return, return unto me, oh! Israel."
