    On 26 April 1838, JS dictated a revelation that changed the official name of the church from the Church of the Latter Day Saints to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Hence, the name used here is anachronistic though not new. In a letter JS wrote in late 1838 to the church in Caldwell County, he also used “Church of Latter day Saints.” (Revelation, 26 Apr. 1838 [D&C 115:4]; Letter to the Church in Caldwell Co., MO, 16 Dec. 1838.)
