This article reproduces a letter from Senator John C. Calhoun to his brother shortly after visiting Nauvoo and meeting with the Prophet Joseph Smith just a few days before he was martyred. This letter contains several interesting, new, or confirming details, and it gives a vivid glimpse into life on the Mississippi River in 1844.
