During Pratt’s imprisonment, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles prepared to launch a joint British mission. Days after arriving in Illinois, Pratt participated in the mass healing occasion known as the “Day of God’s Power.” Weeks later, he departed with his family for New York, port of departure. In the city, he revised several of his works and published his theologically groundbreaking Treatise on Regeneration and Eternal Duration of Matter. After preaching with Joseph Smith in Philadelphia, he sailed to England, where he wrote many pamphlets, dozens of hymns, and edited the church’s periodical Millennial Star. He retrieved his family from the U.S. and labored in the midst of financial hardship. After departure of other apostles, he administered the British mission until he sailed for the “United States in fall 1842.
