Following the fall General Conference in 1852, Orson Pratt was called to preside of the eastern mission and to publish a periodical defending Mormon theology and practices, particularly polygamy. Eighteen issues were printed in Washington and Liverpool, as well as two additional issues printed only Liverpool. Pratt covered many doctrinal issues including Celestial Marriage and the Preexistence. Brigham Young thought some of the ideas discussed were poorly conceived, and had the publication cease operation. In 1865 the LDS Church disowned the writings saying. "The Seer contain doctrines which we cannot sanction, and which we have felt impressed to disown, so that the Saints who now live, and who may live hereafter, may not be misled by our silence, or be left to misinterpret it. Where these objectionable works, or parts of works, are bound in volumes, or otherwise, they should be cut out and destroyed." (Inventory #: 47934)
