Feature Articles: When did Sidney Rigdon first meet Joseph Smith? Part 3

The force of this shock was like an earthquake, when Symonds Ryder, Ezra Booth and many others, submitted to the "New Dispensation."
First of all was the preacher, Sidney Rigdon (who undoubtedly was a fellow-conspirator with Joe Smith, and perhaps the real originator of the fraud), then there was Oliver Snow, a Baptist since 1809, later in the Disciple Church, a farmer of property and intelligence; and Rev. Ezra Booth of the Methodist Church, a bright and well-informed man, whose daughter, Almeda, a score of years later, became a prominent teacher at Hiram and an associate of President Garfield in that noted school; and last, but not least, Symonds Rider, of Hiram, the young preacher who had come out to profess his faith when Elder Thomas Campbell (father of Alexander) preached May 25, 1828, in Jotham Atwater's barn.

Booth had been upset because the church, which was new and had little money, did not pay for his mission and because he did not experience a continual stream of miracles, which he felt was a required aspect of a true church.
He was upset that Joseph Smith played with children (behavior he found not fitting for a prophet of God) and that his own missionary work did not result in a prophecy that he seems to have thought applied to him. Eventually, he began writing letters to newspapers that contained incorrect or slanted information.


Smith History Vault: Robert B. Neal Newspapers

R. B. Neal, evangelist, Grayson, Kentucky, sends out Anti-Mormon Tract No. 6, containing the letters written by Rev. Ezra Booth to Rev. Ira Eddy.
"Years of experience among them affords him (Booth) unusual opportunities to detect their wily schemes, and thus to expose them at their every move." The reader will note that Booth went in among them for the purpose of "detecting their wily schemes" -- went in a hypocrite and came out a "circus rider." ... Suppose he joined the church in September, 1830; he left them in August, 1831. During those "few months" he had "years of experience among them!" The above is from The Watchman, whose stupidity wiull soon pass into a proverb. Not another man, woman or child on earth would bracket the name of (Booth) in that clause in Fred L. Rowe's Introduction to the tract. In "Booth's Bombs," our Tract No. 6, we have reprinted about one-fourth of Howe's "Mormonism Unveiled." Booth was a man of scholarly attainments, of fine brain and a good, honest heart. He was a Methodist minister, and he went into Mormonism with all the strength of his heart and head. He was one of the band that made the pilgrimage to Missouri to locate Zion and the site for a Temple, to which the Saviour would cme when it was erected. He was thrown in close contact with Smith, Rigdon, Cowdery, and all the leaders. When their perfidity and duplicity dawned upon him he was shocked beyond expression. Humiliated, feeling keenly his disgrace, he tells the story of that trip and opens up, with trenchant pen, the "true inwardness" of Mormonism. "Prophet Joe" had the Lord denounce him as an apostate. This is the best commendation he could have of the truthfulness of his letters.
