Ko e fakahā naʻe fai mai ʻia Siosefa Sāmita ko e Palōfitá, ʻi Ketilani, ʻi ʻOhaiō, ʻi Fēpueli 1831 (History of the Church, 1:154–156). ʻI he taimi ko ʻení naʻe ʻi ai ha kāingalotu ʻe niʻihi ʻo e Siasí naʻa nau hohaʻa koeʻuhí he naʻe ʻi ai ha kakai naʻa nau loi ʻo pehē tokua ʻoku nau maʻu fakahā. Naʻe fehuʻi ʻe he Palōfitá ki he ʻEikí peá ne maʻu ʻa e folofola ko ʻení ʻa ia naʻe fai mai ki he kaumātuʻa ʻo e Siasí. ʻOku kau ʻa e konga ʻuluakí ki he ngaahi meʻa fekauʻaki mo hono puleʻi ʻo e Siasí; pea ʻoku ʻi he konga hono uá ha fakatokanga kuo pau ke fai ʻe he kaumātuʻá ki he ngaahi puleʻanga ʻo e māmaní.
