Editorial Note
Ten months passed before JS wrote another entry. In that period he dictated several revelations as he continued revising the Bible, completing his work in July 1833. Organizing and meeting with the School of the Prophets occupied much of his time from January through April. In June, JS and the presidency developed plans for temples in and and for expanded Mormon settlement in each city. In August, JS learned that during the previous month vigilantes had destroyed the church’s printing office and store in and that the Missouri Latter-day Saints had signed an agreement to evacuate Jackson County by spring 1834. In September, JS helped organize efforts in Kirtland to resume the church’s printing operations. JS renewed his journal keeping in October 1833 as he prepared to proselytize in northeastern Pennsylvania, western , and . After he returned to Kirtland a month later, journal entries continued for several weeks.
