From the Foreword- "The letters of Temperance Mack and her daughter Almira Covey preserve a valuable picture of the religious enthusiasm of the early Mormons and of the many struggles which they survived. Adding to the importance of these letters is the relationship between the writers and Joseph Smith, the Prophet and founder of the Mormon Church. Temperance Mack was his aunt; and it was Joseph's own mother who converted her."
