Thanks to reader Clair for pointing this out in comments:
The first issue of the Times and Seasons was published at Nauvoo. â€” 170 years ago today [err, yesterday] â€“ Nov 15, 1839 .
Happy birthday to us!
Has anyone informed headquarters that we are now an official LDS publication?
Not to rain on the birthday party, but the ghosts of Ebenezer Robinson and Don Carlos Smith would want me to point out that the first issue of the Times and Seasons was actually printed in July 1839. After they printed about 200 copies, both editors came down with “swamp fever” and stopped printing until November, when they reprinted the first issue with a new dateline. But T&S deserves well wishes for its rebirthday!
