He participated briefly in a splinter group before Joseph Smith's murder and organized his own group after. A number of his personal writings have been discovered - his early diaries and several notebooks. This notebook presents his views and reminiscences on a number of topics and his enduring conviction that Joseph Smith had been a prophet and that the Book of Mormon is of Divine origin.
Ashworth and I discussed the notebook in some detail and he read a number of selections from it.
We also discussed some of Ashworth's other purchases including some of the forged documents of the infamous Mark Hoffman.
Several participated questions by phone and email.

77. D&C: Facts and History #1
I raise a number of questions I will address regarding the history and content of the Doctrine and Covenants including additions and deletions in various editions.
- Joseph Smith's selection for the D&C in 1835 and 1844 differed from that of Orson Pratt and Brigham Young in 1876. Does this fact raise any questions?
- Book of Commandments.
- 1835 Doctrine and Covenants
- General Assembly called to vote for or against the D&C
- Early publication of some revelations.
- Comments on D&C 76, 121, 109, 129-131, 89
- Procedure regarding acceptance or rejection of revelation.
