Contains a picture at the rear of B. H. Roberts in disguise. In 1898, B. H. Roberts, obtained permission from the First Presidency to seek the Democratic nomination for election to the House of Representatives. Because Roberts had already entered into plural marriage before the Manifesto was issued, it was believed that he could legally obtain the position. "Elder Roberts' running for and election to high office was to prove the fallacy of such an assumption of general acceptance by the general American public and officials." - George R. Gygi
