[illustration] Inside back cover: Elder Wilford Woodruff, by Filippo Pistrucci. While a missionary in London, 33-year-old Wilford Woodruff responded to his wife Phoebe's request to get his "portrait taken." He wrote, "I took my last Sitting for my Portrait with Mr Pistrucci. He says it is an exact likeness." Recently restored, it is the earliest known image of Wilford Woodruff.
