Joseph Smith Diary, by James Mulholland [1] [2]

Attended & presided at meeting—Spoke concerning the other Comforter &c &c &c. [3]

—22 September 1839


[1] See History of the Church, 4:10. Not in Teachings.

[2] James Mulholland (1804-39) was born in Ireland and was converted to the Church in Upper Canada. He served as Joseph Smith's scribe 1838-39.

[3] The "&c &c &c" used to conclude this brief reference of Joseph Smith's discourse suggests that the topic "the other Comforter" was a theme which the Prophet was discussing often at this time. Three of the six discourses reported thus far contain this theme. The theme is taken from John 14.
