The back page has a brief report noting: "The Mormons, since their dispersion in Missouri, have collected in great numbers at a place they have christened Nauvoo, in Illinois, where they are daily receiving numerous accessions of families and individuals. They have erected about 300 houses there since October last. They had 3,000 disciples collected yet a recent conference set Nauvoo."
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 by 12 inches, period writing at the top of the front page, very nice condition.
