Revelation Received Tuesday, March 8, 1831
By the Prophet Joseph (D&C 47)
Behold, it is expedient in Me that My servant John should write and keep a regular history, and assist you, My servant Joseph, in transcribing all things which shall be given you, until he is called to further duties.
Again, verily I say unto you that he can also lift up his voice in meetings, whenever it shall be expedient.
And again, I say unto you that it shall be appointed unto him to keep the church record and history continually; for Oliver Cowdery I have appointed to another office.

Wherefore, it shall be given him, inasmuch as he is faithful, by the Comforter, to write these things.
Even so. Amen.
