Visit of one of the three Nephites
Scope and Contents
Photocopy of a microfilm reproduction of a typed manuscript. The item is an account of Thomas Durham, his wife, Carol, and his son, Thomas Jr., when they were travelling from Payson, Utah, to Salt Lake City, Utah, to attend General Conference of the Mormon Church. They were camped on "this side" [south?] of the Provo River when "a man rode up on a beautiful b---- pony, with four white feet, all so clean. . . . As he rode up, he spoke to Brother Durham, asking his name. Then he told him his wife and two sons, would be coming along soon and asked if they would tell them to stay at their camp fire, until he came back." The man knew of an accident near Springville, Utah, even though he had not come from that direction. The man also had "a little surrey with fringe around the top." After the man had passed "Brother Durham started on but they all glanced back to get a last look, at the beautiful outfit, but they were no where in sight, they had completely disappeared. Brother Durham always felt like this was one of the three Nephites. Uncle Lars Mortenson, who was just ahead, said they not seen or passed anyone of this description."
