Trip to Kirtland

Before we started for home, we visited the John Johnson farm. It was here while sleeping in the guest bedroom with a little sick baby that Joseph was dragged out into the cold and tarred and feathered. The mob even tried to poison him. It was also here where Joseph and Sidney Rigdon received section 76 of the Doctrine and Covenants. We learned that Sister Johnson really liked bright colors. She had one room's trimmings all done in yellow. In another room she had a checkered floor with red, green, and black checkers. Good for her!
