An Unsigned Letter to Edward Hunter

Here's a brief post from Stephen Fleming on Juvenile Instructor about Edward Hunter (1793-1883) the third Presiding Bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, born in Newtown Square, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and a noted citizen of Chester County:
An Unsigned Letter to Edward Hunter: Any Guesses Who and When?
The topic mentioned in the blog post, dissension in the Church upon Joseph Smith's death, was an important issue for the Church in Philadelphia. More about that later. More later as well about Edward Hunter and his family.

Stephen Fleming is probably the foremost expert of the history of the Church in this region, and I'll review some of his other work in the future.

The picture of Edward Hunter, a C. R. Savage photograph, is from Wikipedia, as originally found in the L. Tom Perry Special Collections, Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University, MSS P 24, item 225.
