"I will relate one circumstance that took place in Far West in a house which Joseph had purchased which had been formerly occupied as a public house by some wicked people A short time after he had moved into it one of the children was taken very sick. He laid his hands upon child when it got better. As soon as he went outside the child was sick again He again laid his upon it so that it again recovered. This transpired several times Joseph inquired of the Lord what all meant when he had an vision and saw the devil in person who contended with Joseph face face for some time. He said it his house it belonged to him Joseph had no right there. Joseph rebuked Satan in the name the Lord and he departed and troubled the child no more." (Heber C. Kimball, The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Volume 45, p. 131)
