This Day in Church History
1830: Hyrum Smith introduces Parley P. Pratt, who had borrowed a copy of the Book of Mormon from a Baptist deacon to the Prophet Joseph Smith in Fayette, New York.
1854: Colonel Edward J. Steptoe arrives in Salt Lake City to take his appointed position as governor of the territory of Utah. When he sees how well Brigham Young is administering the territory, he petitions U.S. President Franklin Pierce to reappoint Brigham Young as governor; the president eventually follows this counsel.
1954: The First Presidency adapts the age for ordaining young men to the priesthood, making it 14 for teachers and 16 for priests (the previous ages having been 15 and 17).
