Nathaniel Henry's tastes were
said to be "scholarly" by nature,
and indeed his activities in that
direction confirm it. In 1852
NHF was reported to be a scholar of
"phonography" (an early name for
shorthand). In 1854-56 he
served with John Taylor and Angus M.
Cannon in New York to edit a
newspaper called "The Mormon."
In Mar 1862 we find Wilford Woodruff
attending a lecture about ancient
Egypt taught by N. H. Felt. In
1865-67 he served with Brigham Young
Jr. in Liverpool editing "The
Millennial Star" another important
Church newspaper. These and
other facts lead me to believe he
would have loved the Internet.
I've always been interested in computers, and since the advent of the Internet it has
become apparent how useful it is for researching almost anything. Even Nathaniel H. Felt
is mentioned on many websites the world over. All of the links below at least mention the patriarch
Mormon Historic Sites Foundation -
Nathaniel Henry Felt was an early convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. He was president of the Salem Branch and Brigham Young sent his daughter,
Vilate Young, to live with the Felt family while she attended college.

- Monday, February 8, 1847, Winter Quarters, Nebraska: The Twelve wrote a letter to
Joseph A. Stratton in St. Louis, confirming the appointment of Nathaniel H. Felt as his successor as
President of the St. Louis Conference of the Church.
- A letter was also written to Nathaniel H. Felt, the leader over
the Church in St. Louis. The Twelve advised some of the brethren there to emigrate to the
west during the spring. They were cautioned to leave dancing alone, that it would be a
snare and a trap used by Satan to carry way souls. Dr. Darwin Richardson was invited to
leave for the west immediately, and to bring with him his medicines. Brother Felt was
encouraged to keep the Church free from sin and to disfellowship those who were disorderly.

- Edward Hunter replaced Whitney on 7 April 1851, serving without
counselors until the following 8 September. At that time Young called Nathaniel H. Felt
and John Banks as traveling presiding bishops under Hunter. A month later, Young called
Alfred Cordon to be a "traveling bishop to preside over other bishops." All of these men were
sustained as "assistant presiding and traveling bishops among the people" in the April and
October conferences of 1852 and also in April 1853. Despite these appointed assistants,
Young and Kimball were, according to Young's manuscript history, called as Hunter's
counselors on 11 April 1852 and were unanimously sustained by the conference.
