As a 15-year-old, Joseph Smith wrestles with a man who had attacked and beaten a woman.

I’ll tell you a story. A man who whips his wife is a coward. When I was a boy I once fought with a man who had whipped his wife. It was a hard contest but I still remembered that he had whipped his wife and this encouraged me and I whipped him till he said he had enough.
