On this date: July 22

Thanks to BYU Studies, I wanted to recognize this date:

Nauvoo, Illinois. After William W. Phelps requested forgiveness, Joseph Smith dictated a letter granting that forgiveness and inviting him to return to the Church.

On this day in 1842
Independence, Missouri. Missouri Governor Thomas Reynolds issued a requisition to Illinois Governor Thomas Carlin for the extradition of Joseph Smith and Orrin Porter Rockwell in connection with the Boggs shooting.

On this day in 1842
Nauvoo, Illinois. Nauvoo City Resolution: Upheld the character of Joseph Smith, and organized petitions to the Governor not to issue a writ against Joseph Smith.
