In his letter of Nov. 12, 1878, Rev. Samuel Williams reported: “Some of Rigdon’s nephews are members of the baptist churches in Pittsburgh. Every one who desires to know what they know of Rigdon’s deceptions feel delicate about asking them anything about him. I did hear from what I thought good authority that Rigdon when near his death expressed the wish that he was back in the Reg[ular] Bap[tist] Den[nomination]… Parley Pratt was a tin Pedlar who passed from Conn. out to the West who brought about the acquaintance between Rigdon and Smith.
