Oliver Cowdery Accuses Joseph Smith Of Having An Affair With Fanny Alger
Below is a quote from a letter written on January 21st, 1838.
In this letter Olivery Cowdery accuses Joseph of having a "dirty, filthy affair":
“When he [Joseph Smith] was there we had some conversation in which in every instance I did not fail to affirm that what I had said was strictly true. A DIRTY, NASTY, FILTHY AFFAIR OF HIS AND FANNY ALGER'S was talked over in which I strictly declared that I had never deviated from the truth in the matter, and as I supposed was admitted by himself.”
(Letter written by Oliver Cowdery and recorded by his brother Warren Cowdery; see photograph in The Mormon Kingdom, Volume 1, page 27)
