Quote

The chief purpose and significance of baptism is first that the individual by immersion enters into close communion with the world of light, thus receiving a share of salvation and secondly receives an outer and inner purification from transgression and sin.
This is taken from the book "The Story of the Pearl of Great Price".  This quote concerns what Josiah Quincy said about what he saw on the parchment that Joseph Smith showed to him.
