Crawley writes: "Derived from the revelation to Joseph Smith of January 19, 1841 (D & C 124), which, in its opening verses, enjoined him to make a 'solemn proclamation . . . to all the kings of the world, to the four corners thereof, to the honorable president-elect, and the high-minded governors of the nation.'" He declares that the Proclamation was composed by Parley P. Pratt and "certainly published at the shop of The Prophet" in New York. The paper advertised it in March and stated that "only a few copies have been printed." In October, Wilford Woodruff published 20,000 copies of the pamphlet in Liverpool.
