    Inside back cover: If Father Will Hold Me, by Liz Lemon Swindle. When the Prophet Joseph Smith was a young boy, a severe infection necessitated the removal of bone from his leg. The surgeon wanted to tie Joseph down to keep him still or at least to have him drink liquor to ease the pain. Joseph refused, saying he would be able to bear the pain if his father held him in his arms (see Lucy Mack Smith, History of Joseph Smith by His Mother, edited by Preston Nibley [1958], 56–58).
