Second U.S. document discussing Mormons.  Described as likely an ill-conceived effort to present positive publicity for the Mormons; germinating at the October 8, 1840 Nauvoo conference by new-convert John C. Bennet. The Petition went nowhere, and possibly further inflamed anti-Mormon sentiments. Scarce.
