Ever since my First Vision, while I was still only a boy in my teens, all the professors of religion excited the people to persecute me because I would not deny that Heavenly Father,
Jesus Christ, and the Angel Moroni had appeared unto me.
 
  There he goes folks, a
modern day prophet.
 
  The persecution increased after I received the Plates. People said that I had lied and that there were no Plates, and yet they were constantly trying to steal them from me.*  
  There goes that liar, ol ‛ Joe Smith. Hey, Joe, — seen any Angels lately ?  
     
  Prophesy for
us, Joe !
 
     
  And even though I was hated and persecuted for saying I had seen a vision, it is still true !  

 

* JSH 1:22-25, 60
