Tuesday 10th November 1835 is the second day that Smith has conversed with Matthias. Firmly Joseph Smith told him (Prophet Matthias) that his doctrine was of the Devil and that he was in reality in possession of a wicked and depraved spirit, although he professed to be the spirit of truth itself.
Regarding the Mormon prophets declaration that he believed Prophet Matthias to be a murder; the evidence, along with the final decision of the judicial system, stands against Prophet Joseph Smith, and for Prophet Matthias! Undoubtedly public opinion, the newspapers, and the higher echelons of New York society were against Matthias and Sojourner-Truth, however as stated, they are innocent of all charges against them. Together all the evidence confirms the innocence of Matthias and Sojourner-Truth. Presented before the magistrates, and with the evidence examined; the verdict was, that Matthias and Sojourner-Truth were not guilty as charged.
