NILES' NATIONAL REGISTER, Baltimore, May 27, 1843  Page
4 has a report from Illinois: "Conference at Nauvoo" which notes: "The Mormons recently had the most interesting religious conference at Nauvoo City since their settlement. The Times and Season say that the foundation of the Temple was crowded to excess with thousands of 'Saints', whose traces beamed with gladness as they listened to the prophet', Joe Smith; even the walls were covered and the grounds outside for some distance around the Temple."
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 by 12 inches, very nice condition.

As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
