Document of 6 p. comprising the original drafts of Olney's three letters to the church authorities in Nauvoo threatening to make known to the world a record of their wrongdoing unless they speedily repent ... and publicly admit the error of their ways. Although the church has dis"fellowshiped" him, he asserts that his excommunication does not weigh in hes motives; there must, he warns, be a thorough reformation or he will "unriddle" their doings.
