  David Whitmer, 1887
A Dying Mormon

Richmond, Mo., Jan 23 -- David Whitmer, the last of the three witnesses to the truth of the book of Mormon is now in a dying condition at his home in Richmond. Last evening he called the family and friends to his bedside and bore his testimony to the truth of the book of Mormon and the bible. He is past 83 years of age. Mr. Whitmer is an old citizen of this town and known by every one here as a man of honor, having resided here since the year 1838. He is not and never has been a believer in polygamy. He left the Mormon church in 1838, on account of their departure from the faith as he believes. His mind is still clear, and he has no pain whatever, but is gradually sinking, and death is expected at any hour.
