. Two later redactions were made on the leaves containing the 24 February 1834 revelation. At the top of page seven is inscribed “Sec. 103” in pencil in an unidentified hand. Following the text of this revelation, Orson Hyde inscribed in ink, “Copied by O Hyde 18 augt. 1834.” This notation indicates when Hyde copied this revelation into Revelation Book 2. Beginning in the mid-twentieth century, this record was associated with items that were received by the Church Historian’s Office from descendants of James Henry Rollins. It is unclear, however, if this notebook follows that same chain of custody.
